The Greatest Movies I’ve Never Seen #5: The Usual Suspects

by gwolinetz on February 7th, 2014

For the record, I am extremely ashamed that I’ve not seen this film yet. There are a lot of reasons, but the one that I’m most ashamed of is the fact that I actually OWN this movie on DVD. It was given to me over 15 years ago by a friend who was shocked back then that I hadn’t seen it. Now, 19 years later, and courtesy of Netflix streaming (and really, courtesy of my sister, who let’s me use her Netflix account), I’m finally diving in.

Here’s the other important point: I have no expectations of this film, other than that I’m told I might like it. That’s it. It’s been so long since it came out that I feel like I’m at the point where societal pressure here is completely gone. The Usual Suspects is now as old as Annie Hall was when it came out.

So, what did I think?

Mind. Blown.
