"The Usual Suspects" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

In the mid-90s an unknown director Bryan Singer begin shooting 'suspicious persons'. This is his larger project compared to his previous works: the short film 'lion's den', and not very successful full-length 'public access'. However, in comparison with the modern project, 'The Usual Suspects' was rather modest budget of 6 million and the famous actors almost was not involved. Despite these circumstances, a new picture of the past quite successfully paid off the budget several times and won numerous awards. Why did it happen? The answer is simple: high-quality work, talent and desire to make a good movie! But the most important thing is that the audience saw, we can say new, certainly not izezzhennoy narrative model that includes unexpected plot twists and no less surprising ending. Due to this, 'The Usual Suspects' influenced the development of crime thrillers, and cinema in general, and, later, did it became fashionable to do a movie with an unexpected ending, and the trend has been continuous.
colorful characters take us throughout the show, all actors perfectly coped. It is worth noting Kevin Spacey and Chaz Palminteri, their play seemed to me the most interesting, though, Gabriel Byrne, too, was not bad. Stephen Baldwin Thank you for that played better than playing sometimes and what appeared here and not in some deep shit. Actor Kevin Pollak is also quite interesting, that's just a character he has registered poorly scripted, so it stood out clearly. About Del Toro to talk too much is not necessary, I think that this is his role znaminatelna one of the earliest appearances of Benicio on the screen. It is worth mentioning Pete Postlethwaite, a small role played nasyshenno lawyer, even slightly tinged with an eerie, touch of darkness, t. To. Representative character of the main villain, whom we have not seen and said on his behalf. Coldness and cynicism, even when applied at the time of the gun to his head look natural.
plot to describe almost no sense, besides, the picture is built in such a way that almost every scene of the plot is complicated by parallel lines are a few that actually something cool and modern. And it was all fresh and for the 1995 year. There really remember the 'Reservoir Dogs' Tarantino, but makes them perhaps the only intricate narrative structure and the theme of crime, robberies.
So five different police herding criminals in one area, on suspicion of robbery. After idiotic identification procedures and proderzhaniya the camera guys, very angry and decided to take revenge on the cops. And at the same time earn some money. Inventing and embodying a daring plan, they dipped into the already familiar to them once the danger of a world of excitement and risk. Subsequently, they 'leave' a powerful gangster, cleverly blackmailing, forcing the characters to work for him. His IME Kaiser Sauzee.
This character without which the film would not be as interesting without him it would have been almost ordinary crime tape. Kaiser completes the picture with new colors, in a sense, the film all about him, other characters only deduce the story in the right direction.
So who is still the Kaiser Sauzee? Bezzhalosny mafia boss, who will do anything for the sake of implementing their plans. He is cruel. He is cool. He is a great strategist and schemer. And most importantly, that nobody has ever seen, and yet he is always there. He does not forgive anyone anything, it has become almost a myth. Many believe it is fiction, bikes, even a cover of a gangster or a whole group. Police and the FBI are not quite sure of the existence of the Kaiser, but there are many who are afraid of more than anything else. When one understands that before him Sauzee, he prays for help, crying, but he knows deep down that it was useless, because everyone who saw it, must die. Kaiser himself is very convenient so mythical, because it gives it an aura of power figure, impunity, even invulnerability.
transaction planned by Kaiser, with which the story begins and shows throughout the film is slozhnosochinennogo criminal plan tasteful. With the same care as it thinks its operations, and the film is made, all the action is targeted in seconds, all you need is shown on time, and most importantly - there is nothing superfluous. Perhaps the director Bryan Singer is working on Kaiser Sauzee and directed a movie for even more intimidation of ordinary mortals)
Award Kevin Spacey Oscar for Best Supporting Actor - one of the most adequate solutions to the academy at the time. Same thing with screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, also received the coveted statuette. It is worth noting that the production and Bryan Singer, and Cinematography Newton Thomas Sigel deserve high rewards. Composer John OTTM wrote a good, suitable genres of music, but not much more, but the installation of the painting he was successful (a rare case, composer and editor - one person, allowing him a full synchronization is achieved izobrozheniya and music).
In conclusion, I want to add that Mr Singer was shot in the future 'Apt pupil' by Stephen King, is also quite successful, and then unfortunately plunged into 'Leedy-X' of the franchise industry. There was also an unsuccessful attempt to pose the 'Superman' and faded past, but tolerable 'Valkyrie' and 'Jack - conquerors of giants'. But remember it is mainly, unfortunately for 'People-X'. I like these movies, they are a lot better than the add projects on comics, but may wonder Brian spends many years and effort to the same thing, as would give the world a few great thrillers, how is it by far the best picture of 'The Usual Suspects'.
P. S. Singer also filmed the popular TV series 'House MD', I'm not a fan, but apparently he has not turned out badly. It also removes the series 'Battle Cry', and in the past a couple of times there were some very famous TV movies. In the future, we have in addition to the new portion of 'X-Men' await his musical 'Broadway-4D "and the blockbuster' Battlestar Galactica '.
P. S. S. Bryan Singer is still collaborating with writer and composer Ottmenom McQuarrie.
