The Usual Suspects (1995)

The Usual Suspects is a 1995 neo-noir mystery thriller film directed by Bryan Singer. This film follows a survivor as he recounts the circumstances that led to a violent gunfight at the police station after five criminals met in a random lineup. Without Spacey, this film would undoubtedly be unwatchable. His role, con-man Kint, is so well-crafted that any actor would want to play it, but no one can do it credit and take it to new levels like Spacey.


One of the key reasons this film is still one of the most rewatched is because of his performance. Spacey received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture and a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role.

Se7en (1995)

The film follows David Mills (Pitt), a detective who teams up with William Somerset (Freeman), a retired cop, to track down a serial murderer who uses the seven deadly sins as a motif in his murders. Se7en is one of the most horrific serial killer thrillers ever created, with outstanding performances by Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, and especially Kevin Spacey.

This film made over $327 million worldwide, making it the ninth highest-grossing film of the year. The film's brutal and dark theme, as well as the performances, were acclaimed by critics.

Telstar: The Joe Meek Story (2008)

Telstar: The Joe Meek Story is a 2008 film adaptation of James Hicks and Nick Moran's play Telstar, about record producer Joe Meek, which premiered in London's West End in June 2005 at the New Ambassadors Theatre. The protagonist of the story, Joe Meek, is a record producer who was musically illiterate and tone-deaf but had a talent for creating and was obsessed with music. Meek's strange business manager is played by Spacey, who has a notable upper-class English accent. With his outstanding performance, he certainly enhances the overall quality of the film.


On Sunday, Scotland's Siobhan Synnot applauded the film for not using the usual "cinematic gloss." She believes it starts out lightheartedly but quickly evolves into a "harrowing film," and that Telstar "knocks the wind out of the sails" of The Boat That Rocked by providing "more substantial and engaged" performances.

The Negotiator (1998)

The Negotiator is a 1998 American action thriller film directed by F. Gary Gray. This action-packed film follows a police negotiator on his mission to prove his innocence after being accused of murder and corruption. It's a remarkable film, with the excellent screenplay, directing, and acting.


Due to the outstanding performances of Kevin Spacey and Samuel L. Jackson, this film is undervalued and deserves considerably more recognition. In his less-than-enthused review for the San Francisco Chronicle, Mick LaSalle praised Spacey's performance the most: "Kevin Spacey is the main reason to see The Negotiator...Spacey's special gift is his ability to make sanity look radiant...In The Negotiator, as in L.A. Confidential, he gives us a man uniquely able to accept, face and deal with the truth".

Directed by: F. Gary Gray

Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Spacey, David Morse, Ron Rifkin

Release date: July 29, 1998

Elvis & Nixon (2016)

Elvis & Nixon is a 2016 American comedy-drama film. The film follows the hidden true story behind Elvis Presley, the King of Rock 'n Roll, and President Richard Nixon's meeting, which resulted in this revealing, but amusing moment preserved in the National Archives' most sought image.


Spacey did an excellent job in his portrayal of Nixon. He exudes the perfect amount of amusement and humor. Spacy and Shannon had fantastic chemistry, and they both gave incredible performances as those two icons. Flickering Myth enjoyed the film: “Elvis & Nixon is an entirely pleasant 86 minutes in the cinema – entertaining, humorous and well-made, albeit somewhat forgettable. Also, it’s further proof that a female director can harness the energy of two top male thespians portraying macho men”.
