Zandman75's rating of the film Grosse Pointe Blank

A rare gem of a "mainstream" cinema that through some strange alchemy radiates a kind of coolness that can hardly be found in any other movie. Inspired casting, with John Cusack on point; excellent, low-key direction; sparkling dialogue; brilliant music... it's the only movie I've watched twice in a day since I was fourteen. As a bonus: One of the (if not THE) best fight scenes in movie history. What's not to like?
