The mid life crisis to end them all. A remarkable watch.
Excellent and up there with some of my best films of all time as Spacey pulls off his best ever part as Lester suffering a mid life crisis
Superb look inside the mind of a narcissistic middle-age crisis. Unfortunately, Spacey's real life made this ultra creepy. Still worth it.
Not sure how well this has aged considering a large portion of the plot involves Kevin spacey lusting after a minor
A roller coaster ride of emotion! Certain parts were so uncomfortable, some I laughed. I was locked in. Its best picture award is deserved.
While it might be twisted and slightly pretentious, this movie is so artistic and charismatic with fascinating characters. A+ for Spacey.
It was amazing but it's got a predator in it so depends how you feel about that.
The perfect depiction of suburban, middle-class life and midlife crises all in one. The dark humor meshes so well, feels fresh as ever
