About this book

A heist thriller with a dazzling twist in the tail, this film "The Usual Suspects" captivated audiences. Time has seen its reputation grow until it is now a major cult movie. However, when it was first released critical views were somewhat mixed. This critical resistance is the author's starting point. Ernest Larsen examines the film's sophistcated narrative structure and the new spin it puts on an old genre.
