A Love Story of Epic Proportions(SPOILERS)

I can't say anything that hasn't been said about this movie before. But I still wanted to add this review. This story took me for a spin. Sure, the direction and acting has flaws that damn near every 90s movie has. But it's 2+ hr runtime isn't enough to elaborate on everything this movie has to offer. I would've watched a 3+ hr version, were it ever made.

I wish I had the vocabulary and eloquence to explain all the things this film made me feel and all the themes I noticed and explored in my mind during and after. This is a movie I can watch over and over again. Much like Before Sunrise, I love the characters and despite lacking a significant backstory I find myself musing over who they are and how they lived. Keep an open mind about this film and ignore the hype of "the big twist" because it's so much more than just a twist gimmick movie.

Nicely shot and decently executed

This movie came out 25 years ago so I already knew about the so-called twist. I probably knew about it since Ace Ventura was released because it satirizes the aftermath of the reveal.

It holds up as a pretty good movie. Very good performance from Forest Whitaker doing what I thought to be quite a convincing British accent. Stephen Rea does a fine job as well as the protagonist. It's a shame that Jaye Davidson did not act much beyond this film because they are excellent in this role as Dil.

I think this movie was a bit of a sleeper hit and these days doesn't really get talked about. But it's one of Neil Jordan's better movies as I find his directing to be a bit clumsy by the 2000s. Expect an above average shot film with unique story.

File this under Movies That Draw You In

An IRA thug who falls for his prisoner's girlfriend. That's about as direct as it gets when it comes to summarizing "The Crying Game" (at least as far DVD cover blurbs go). But it's much more than that. Fate, deception, guilt, love - it's about all of those as well, but to discount it as centering on the twist is completely unfair. To me, the best thing about this movie is that it ended up being entirely different from how it began. And along the way, there are great performances (Stephen Rea and Jaye Davidson, in particular), striking cinematography and engaging direction to its credit.

Note: If you've ever seen a certain Jim Carrey movie, then you know the twist I'm talking about. The reason I bring this up is because the movie stands on its own very well despite this spoiler, and remains absolutely worth seeing.
