Break out the popcorn, again, get comfy and make sure your subscription to Netflix is up to date. I’m adding more flicks to Post*factua!ly’s unique movie catalog all about lies, deception, fakery, cheating and alternative facts. I currently have over 30 movie trailers in our deceitful database, as I plan to grow it into the definitive source. Please hang in there. Just like our growing collections of books and songs about lies, lying and liars this will take some time — there’s just sooooo much misleading material, and it’s growing daily!
The Usual Suspects is a 1995 noir mystery directed by Bryan Singer, written by Christopher McQuarrie and starring Kevin Spacey, Pete Postlethwaite, Stephen Baldwin, Gabriel Byrne and Benicio del Toro. The movie is an intricate and convoluted series of lies that grows from a seemingly simple con into an enormously complex deception. McQuarrie and Spacey won Oscars for best screenplay and actor, respectively.
Infernal Affairs is a fast-paced crime thriller about deception and infiltration. In parallel, a mole infiltrates a police department and an undercover cop infiltrates a Chinese Triad. But their objectives are the same: to find out who is masquerading; who is the mole, and who is the cop.
Some of my choice titles in the Post*factua!ly movie catalog so far incude: Big Fat Liar (2002), Catch Me If You Can (2002), Double Indemnity (1944), F for Fake (1974), Gaslight (1944), Liar Liar (1997), Some Like it Hot (1959), and The Invention of Lying (2009).
