The fifth film to be chosen in the MovieMuse Film Club is the off-beat action thriller Way of the Gun.
Chosen by Graeme Mason, Way of the Gun was written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie who also wrote the BAFTA winning screenplay for The Usual Suspects. Starring Benico Del Toro and Ryan Phillipe as hapless kidnappers, the film was panned on release but remains a firm favourite of Graeme’s.

A clever and entertaining film that lets itself down with a saggy middle section and too much dialogue. Great performances and and an intriguing first and last 15 minutes raise it slightly above popcorn.
