The Usual Suspects ★★★½

Directed by an asshole, written by the most boring person on earth, and staring another asshole, The Usual Suspects is saved by the rest of the (amazingly selected) cast being pretty damn great. I grew up in an area where folks thought this was the most mind bending movie ever made... and while I never agreed with that viewpoint personally (then or now), I gotta hand it to all those assholes involved... the final twist is super fun and worthy of the Saw ‘hello zep’ twist music.

My mom wanted to watch a thriller so my dad picked up a pizza and we settled on this since my fiancé and mother haven’t seen it... we had fun... but good pizza makes everything better—so does mom and dad <3
