Before Bryan Singer tackled the X Men franchise and brought comic book films into a new era he directed the Christopher McQuarrie penned The Usual Suspects which launched him into movie fandom fame. The story of five felons all thrown into a room together and then forced to pull off an impossible job not all of them would walk away from. A job put to them by mythical bad guy boogieman Keyser Soze. Kevin Spacey and Christopher McQuarrie walked away with Oscar wins for Best Screenplay and Best Actor In A Supporting Role. Though the film can technically only be seen once as its big reveal at the end of the film is what it’s most famous for all of the actors who played a part in the film put on great performances. A great gritty masterpiece.
