OOOOO.. the culprit !
Ended up FINALLYYY watching usual suspects last evening .. i know ,for a movie freak like me , its strange how i havent seen some really critically acclaimed movies..this post isnt a movie review..sometime back a cousin of mine (who has this habit of telling unsuspecting people endings of movies let me and several others in on the "twist in the tale" .. We tried to block out what he was saying by stuffing our ears with our fingers and making guttural,nasal noises to drown out his monologue..The clever bugger suddenly stopped talking , so we assumed that he was done with his atyachaar..how naive we were !!! .. we stopped droning.. all of us pull out our fingers as well and .. voila! the bugger tells us "who actually dun it" .. The point of me telling you all this is that .. its really weird seeing a movie when the spoilers have already been floated around.. You start giving special meaning to every dialogue and glance that the " culprit" sends your way .. and with this movie , it was even more confusing cos it zips in and out between the past and present ..so finally after 1 1/2 hours, i decided that there was no fun in watching it cos i already knew what was gonna happen.. Its like reading the last page of a novel and trying to work backwards .. i must try that sometime ..
