Grosse Pointe Blank ★★★★

Probably ranks in my top three John Cusack films after Say Anything... and High Fidelity. In fact, if you watched all three, there isn't a huge amount of variation from Cusack. But he found his groove in these three films and Grosse Point Blank is again, a vehicle for his love of music, his everyman cool and extended, awkward conversations on landlines.

Twenty years (!) after this came out and it all holds up fairly well thanks to the screenplay, the chemistry between Minnie Driver and Cusack, the soundtrack, Joan Cusack, and the best Dan Akyroyd had been since the 80's. I mean, it still feels a product of the 90's but the charm remains resonate.
