Overview
Masterful, atmospheric and dripping with suspense, this winner of two Academy Awards®* is the "freshest, funniest and scariest crime thriller to come along since Pulp Fiction" (Rolling Stone).

Stephen Baldwin, Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Pollak, Kevin Spacey (in his first Oscar®-winning role) and Oscar®** winner Benicio Del Toro star as five small-time criminals entangled in the merciless scheme of an unseen underworld kingpin in this "thoroughly engrossing film" (HBO) that's "a polished exercise in pure virtuoso style" (Los Angeles Times)!
