Tagline: Five Criminals . One Line Up . No Coincidence
Plot outline: After a waterfront explosion, Verbal (Kevin Spacey), an eye-witness and participant tells the story of events leading up to the conflagration. The story begins when five men are rounded up for a line-up, and grilled about a truck hijacking (the usual suspects). Least pleased is Keaton (Gabriel Byrne) a crooked cop - exposed, indicted, but now desperately trying to go straight. The cops won't leave him alone, however, and as they wait for their lawyers to post bail, he is talked into doing one more job with the other four. All goes tolerably well until the influence of the legendary, seemingly omnipotent "Keyser Soze" is felt. Although set in the modern day, it has much of the texture of the forties, plus suspense, intrigue (a fairly high body count), and lots of twists in the plot. Summary written by {Phil.Kilby@dit.csiro.au} Police investigating an exploded boat on a San Pedro pier discover 27 bodies and $91 million worth of drug money. The only survivors are a severely burned and very scared Hungarian terrorist and Verbal Kint, a crippled con-man. Reluctantly, Kint is pressurised into explaining exactly what happened on the boat. His story begins six weeks earlier with five criminals being dragged in by New York police desperate for suspects on a hijacked truck and ends with the possible identification of a criminal mastermind.

Comment: To achieve a top twenty all time ranking..and a composite rating of 8.7 you are looking at one seriously relevant flick here. To nominate the film as innovative is almost insulting. So multi-levelled and literate is it, that not one in a hundred people would have picked the solution. Told in coherent and linked flashback, we are presented with a kaleidoscope of facts, a smorgasboard of suspects and yet no thread with which to tie it all together. Spacey was totally deserving of his Best Supporting Actor Oscar as crippled con-man Roger Vint, grilled by cop Palminteri for the majority of the movie. Absolute blast of a performance from Pete Postlethwaite also, as the mysterious Kobayashi. The last three minutes of the film are simply jaw dropping as both Palminteri and the audience realise that they have been "had" and in such a monumentally intelligent way. Up there with SLEUTH!
