8/16/1995 The Usual Suspects arrive
August 16, 1995. The Usual Suspects was released on this date. Cleverly written, brilliantly acted, it was one of those flicks that you wanted to watch again immediately to see what you had missed. Kevin Spacey won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, and Christophe McQuarne won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
