    A well-made, complex thriller. An IRA terrorist responsible for a British soldier's death goes to London and falls for the dead man's girlfriend. Rea got a Best Actor nomination as the kind terrorist, Richardson is superb as a playful but dangerous IRA terrorist, but the unquestionable scene-stealer is Davidson in an Oscar-nominated performance. Won an Oscar for it's screenplay which is exciting and deep, exploring themes of race, desire and gender. Numerous plot twist and fully-realized characters help make Independent cinema more nervy. I give it a 5/5.

  • one of the best films ever

    THE CRYING GAME is the best film from director Neil Jordan...with an extraordinary script, funny/sad dialogue, incredible performances by the entire cast.....most amazing is that it is not 'just' and exciting and entertaining film. It has something important to say about the divisions we have in our world: political, racial, sexual (both gender and orientation issues)...and how we as human beings can overcome those prejudices. When released, the 'secret' was kept by viewers so as not to spoil the turn of events...and cheers to Stephen Rea, Forest Whitaker, Miranda Richardson, with special praise for Jaye Davidson as Dil. The film's closing moments say something deep and true about the possibility of love between people that breaks through the walls of all types of prejudices...to ultimately heal those divisions with compassion. (Be aware of some difficult violence in some sequences.) BIG THANKS to TCM for bringing this film to television in its original form...and for TCM for being the best network ever!
