Double bill featuring two popular thrillers. In 'The Usual Suspects' (1995), a burnt-out ship has been discovered in a Los Angeles harbour along with twenty-seven dead bodies. US customs agent Dave Kujal (Chazz Palminteri) is working on the case, and thinks his best chance is to interrogate the one survivor of the shipboard massacre, conman 'Verbal' Kint (Kevin Spacey). Sitting in an office at police headquarters, Kint begins to tell his story, and the more he says, the more Kujal becomes convinced that mythical master criminal Keyser Soze is the man behind it all. In 'Kalifornia' (1993), a writer (David Duchovny) and his photographer girlfriend leave New York to drive to a new life in California, taking in several Southern States so that they can visit murder sites for their new book on serial killers. Along the way they pick up two hitchhikers, one of whom (Brad Pitt) could provide an interesting case study for their research.
