Goofs

When the Sheriff is talking to the deputy at about 18 minutes or so, I noticed that the rank insignia they wear is not correct for their rank in the department. They are wearing Army rank insignia on their epaulets and the deputy is wearing Corporal rank which is a higher rank than the rank the Sheriff is wearing, which is Private First Class. It should be the other way around since the Sheriff is supposed to be higher in rank. Oops. See more »

We need more intelligent movies like "THE SUSPECT"
26 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Some of us while watching a film, look for unpredictability, and on my opinion 95 per cent of the movies are about the same, crime with a cliché, zombie with a cliché, etc... with a cliché, and when you find an argument that is telling you nothing, I mean teasing you with the same question: "What is really happening here?" and then immerse and interest you without giving a real clue, that's what I CALL A GOOD ONE!

I came into "The suspect" waiting for something that would turn off my attention within fifteen minutes, instead, after an hour or so, I was with eyes glued to the screen, no blood, no shootings, no CGI, but a story, not build in great suspense, but properly elaborated, and I wondered how come movies like this fall into the great pit of indifference... because most moviegoers are lazy and dumb? The acting is good, at moments like watching live theater, more interestingly the plot takes a turn as if Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad) had something to do with it.

The writer and director's name is STUART CONELLY and hopefully his work catches the attention of a TV network, or a big movie studio, because frankly, we need more intelligent movies like "THE SUSPECT"

My recommendation is: watch this movie of you are looking for a smart and twisted ending! And as always no spoilers in here.
