I watched two movies yesterday, American Beauty and The Usual Suspects.
American Beauty is the best Best Picture winner in a decade. It is magnificently directed, gorgeously acted; it's also hilarious, smart, and very, very sharp.
The Usual Suspects was one of the better crime movies, and by better, I'd say maybe top five, top three. The writing was great, I mean great. This movie, like American Beauty, had Kevin Spacey in it (who I am now the biggest fan of), and he won an academy award for this one too. Boy, he deserved it.

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
