The question was "Influenced by"

Not "Great ones influenced by".

I love The Usual Suspects. So many great chewy scenes.

I also like The Usual Suspects, but it's definitely overrated.

It's a good watch. Once. Calling it great is a misnomer.

I would put it somewhere between good and great, all depends on my mood when watching it. I would much rather Reservoir Dogs though.

Ya. It was amazing watching that for the first time and realizing that this is the same dude who so convincingly played Gandhi. The cigarette on the airplane scene is worth the price of admission alone. Was also cool seeing Winstone actually afraid of someone for a change.
