UnUsual Originality

Posted : 11 years, 11 months ago on 13 October 2006 10:55 (A review of The Usual Suspects (1995))

The originality of perhaps the best written movie I have ever watched has left me only to describe my favorite movie of all time. Never before has a movie challenged the viewer with such a web of twists and turns, an entangling of the mind reminiscent of a true Kansas City Shuffle.

From the beginning to end, we are left questioning the outcome to the movie that single-handedly reshaped the crime drama genre. The aura that writer Christopher McQuarrie surrounds villian Keyser Soze with adds to the mystique of this true cult classic. And the ending, which stands at the pinnacle movie making, will now and forever leave first time viewers in complete awe of its mastery. I highly recommend this movie to anyone with a mind and appreciation for brilliant writing.
