by Doc Quantum, adapted from The Usual Suspects, screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie
In Hamburg, Germany, five criminals who specialize in heists and hijackings are placed in one police lineup: a former Gestapo and Hamburg policeman named Wolfgang Hurtz, a top-notch entry man and sniper named Red McGraw, a transvestite con man named Dickie Stanton, an explosives expert named Denny Dyce, and a crippled Czech named Alexander “Mouthpiece” Koda. Making the most of this meeting, the five decide to team up for a few more jobs together. But as they soon begin to realize, their placement in the lineup was no coincidence, and they’re being manipulated every step of the way. Who is this mysterious figure pulling all the strings known as Baron Povalsky, alias the Marksman, and just whose side is he on?
