The Usual Suspects

Movie • 1995 • Crime  

Report
Held in an L.A. interrogation room, Verbal Kint attempts to convince the feds that a mythic crime lord, Keyser Soze, not only exists, but was also responsible for drawing him and his four partners into a multi-million dollar heist that ended with an explosion in San Pedro harbor – leaving few survivors. Verbal lures his interrogators with an incredible story of the crime lord's almost supernatural prowess.
This movie contains 34 potentially triggering events.

A child has his throat slit and two others are shot in a flashback, however the flashback is low quality and not graphic. There's a mention of other children being killed.

There are multiple scenes where the shot is unsteady, some scenes more than others. Most of the very shakey shots happen near the end, where the characters are on a boat.

Not blackface, but there is a white actor playing a character with an Asian name by wearing makeup significantly darker than his usual skin tone and adopting what's apparently meant to be an Indian or Pakistani accent.

Because the film is about a group of people behaving in unpleasant ways, this isn't a straightforward question the way it would be for a story with a single heroic and sympathetic protagonist. Some of the characters are happy with how things turn out, some are dissatisfied, some don't get to have an opinion because they're dead. Whether it's all worth it in the end is something individual viewers will have different opinions about.
