I really like LA Confidential, but I suppose I like 8 Mile a wee bit more. Eminem is excellent...

That's okay.  It was after Jason X, so my career was on the rise.  (Plus I got a 6 free weeks in Vegas.)

Four Great Thrillers:
The Hand That Rocks the Cradle
The River Wild
The Bedroom Window
Bad Influence


Two Great movies besides
L.A. Confidential
Too Big To Fail


Good but not great
Wonder Boys
8 Mile


Fair/sometimes good
In Her Shoes
Lucky You


Early effort, not worth tracking down
Sweet Kill

Miscellaneous early work/no interest/looks bad
The Little Dragons
Losin' It
The Children of Times Square




I think this guy is great and I'd recommend the top four to anybody. Thrillers are most certainly his strong suit.

I've been chipping away at his film filmography for a while now and for all intents and purposes consider the task done. It was well worth the effort as I came away with a couple wonderful discoveries. I think next I'll be revisiting all the Satoshi Kon films.
