This Friday (14th October) Largs Film Society’s screening is the modern American classic ‘The Usual Suspects’ (1995), a tour de force of a crime movie with a stellar cast and an ingenious script.

Five criminals are arrested and placed in a line up and questioned. All are released without charge and they plan a revenge operation against the police. The five fall under the influence of the legendary mastermind criminal called Keyser Söze; but who is Keyser Söze?

Voted as the movie with the best plot twist, this film assaults your mind throughout leaving you in a bewildered state of what actually happened. The twists and turns never detract from the powerful direction and superb acting. The line-up is now regarded as one of the best improvised scenes of all time and took a full day to shoot due to the cast being unable to control themselves. Spacey suffered for his art here, as he glued his fingers of his left hand together to more accurately represent his condition. Frequent viewings of the film can give more insight. But more clarity?

The Society screens films every third Friday from September to May in the Valhalladrome at Vikingar; doors open at 7pm with a short introduction to the film before the screening at 7.30pm. Entry is to members and their guests. Membership is now closed for this season. For membership enquiries please contact For more information and programme details see
