Brilliant modern "film noir", with a superb cast from an original screenplay. Won't give the plot away,min case you haven't seen it. It is a convoluted, but gripping tale of 5 criminals brought together to do a job by a mythical underworld figure, keyser soze ("Ky-zerr So-say") and told retrospectively by an "unreliable narrator" (Kevin Spacey). I won't reveal the plot just in case you haven't seen it. Great main cast, who work superbly together as an ensemble. Highly recommended. Honestly. Watch it.
(Also an added bonus for nerds, like me, who have watched it MANY times, it's interesting to watch and pick out which bits of the story you can be sure are "true" and which parts may not be!)
