Mission: Impossible (1996)

Endlessly re-watchable, essentially so in my case. It took four years of repeat viewings and eventual use of the subtitles to clock why the ending happens the way it does (Ethan and Jim’s Liverpool Street diner talk made no sense to me until I worked out that the flashbacks were juxtaposed against Ethan’s monologue, not a literal re-enactment of it – muttering Americans, am I right?) but it took guts and a strange taste for sadism to kill off both Kristin Scott Thomas and Emilio Estevez in the first 15 minutes, and with such brutality too. 1,292 more words
