The Usual Suspects

Best Picture Nominee Snubs Series! March 8 - 10

Mystery — Running time 1:56
Rated R - for violence and strong language

Expertly shot and edited, THE USUAL SUSPECTS gives us a simple plot and then piles on layers of deceit, twists, and violence before pulling out the rug from underneath. The film was shown out of competition at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival and then initially released in a few theaters. It received favorable reviews and was given a wider release. The praise went towards the mystery elements, the screenplay, the plot twist and Spacey’s performance. McQuarrie won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and Spacey won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. The Writers Guild of America ranked the film as having the 35th greatest screenplay of all time.
