THE USUAL SUSPECTS

Double Feature with THINGS TO DO IN DENVER WHEN YOU’RE DEAD

(1995) dir Bryan Singer w/Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Spacey, Chazz Palminteri, Benicio del Toro, Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Pollack, Pete Postlethwaite [106 min; DCP]
The ultimate in 1990s neo-noir (next to L.A. Confidential), THE USUAL SUSPECTS paints a complicated portrait of a group of men drawn into the web of legendary criminal, Keyser Söze. The events of a heist gone wrong are told in the form of an interrogation between a suspect (Spacey) and the FBI agent investigating the incident (Palminteri).

“This movie has everything but Humphrey Bogart, and I’m sure he’s sorry he was unavailable.” – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Examiner

“It’s a nerve-shredding suspense movie about corruption, a bravura actor’s show full of deliciously twisted cops and robbers, and a complex riddle packed with unexpected turns.” – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

“Singer creates a classy, thought-provoking mystery that is pleasingly old-fashioned and absolutely modern in the sly, slightly self-conscious play it makes with myth and methods of storytelling.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out
