    Can I press you on what it is that grabs you second time around?
    There is, in the first watch, a major twist at the end, probably far too well known now. But in the second watch you see clues that aren't obvious when first watching.

    Shawshank is an amazing film, and book/novella by the mighty Stephen King.

    Shankshaw redemption is definitely a very good movie.

    As is "The usual suspects"

    I would also recommend "The Game" starring Michael Douglas

    Salmon fishing in Jemen was also quite a nice film.

    I know nothing about The usual suspects, other than the accolades over time. I'll give it a watch and report back.

    Richard Gere had his best fim (in my opinion) in "Mr. Jones". He did really well in depicting a person with bipolar disorder.

    what about Dr Zhivago, at least it won acadamy award for music score. A deep look at the times before and after the Russian revolution of 1917 and an earlier one in 1905.

    Here are a couple of my oldie but goodie favorites if you don't mind a stroll through yesteryear:

    Play Misty for Me.
    Primal Fear.

    and even a musical ?!? --> Paint Your Wagon.
    Just in case you have never heard Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood sing.
