“Who is Keyser Soze?”  That is the burning question posed in this offbeat 1995 caper film. A boat at a San Pedro pier explodes and police find $90 million dollars and 27 corpses.  At a following inquest, detectives quiz survivors about a legendary crime lord named Soze.  One of the men questioned is a cripple who tells a fanciful story about a drug deal gone sour. The police believe the cripple’s story and let  him go. As he walks away he loses his limp, revealing himself to be the elusive Soze. The movie starred Kevin Spacey as Keyser Soze.  Christopher McQuarrie won an Oscar for his original screenplay.
