Overview
Winner of two 1995 Academy Awards®, including Best Original Screenplay, this masterful, atmospheric 'film noir' enraptured audiences with its complex and riveting storyline, gritty, tour-de-force performances (including an Oscar®-winning turn by Kevin Spacey) and a climax that is truly deserving of the word stunning. This "thoroughly engrossing film" (HBO) is so "gripping and diabolically clever" ('The Wall Street Journal') that it becomes "a maze you'll be happy to get lost in" ('Los Angeles Times')!

Held in an L.A. interrogation room, Verbal Kint (Spacey) attempts to convince the feds that a mythic crime lord 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. But as Kint lures his interrogators into the incredible story of this crime lord's almost supernatural prowess, so too will you be mesmerized by a lore that is completely captivating from beginning to end!
