The Life of David Gale (2003)
#73 on my Top 100 List
I know that a lot of people hate this movie - it's too heavy-handed, it's poorly-written, etc. - but I saw it for free at an advanced screening in Boston and met Kevin Spacey at a Q&A afterward, so I love for that reason alone. I'm biased. I could definitely do without the random spinning camera and the various words that flash across the screen, but I think there is a good story buried beneath the anti-capital punishment propaganda. Kate Winslet and Kevin Spacey both give good performances, making a lot out of what they were given.
My Netflix rating: 5 stars
