A great movie

I never really like twists in the movies but this one was, for me, completely unexpected. It is really weird movie which cannot be classified and it is is Neil Jordan's best movie so far. The story was just really fascinating and so unexpected. The less you know about it, the more you will enjoy it. Definitely worth a look.

Movies Hollywood Was Afraid to Make (8 movies items)

"Irish filmmaker Neil Jordan found himself in Hollywood demand after his low-budget Mona Lisa became an international success in 1986, but his studio follow-ups High Spirits and We’re No Angels didn’t exactly set the world on fire. That could have been why he couldn’t get studio financing for The Crying Game, which he wrote and planned to direct; they were also reportedly concerned that audiences would be turned off by the film’s big plot twist, which contained a bit more sexual ambiguit"

Total Film's 50 Best Gay Movies (50 movies items)

"Best known for that stinger of a twist, The Crying Game stars Stephen Rea as Fergus, a member of the IRA who falls in love with Dil (Jaye Davidson), a dead soldier’s girlfriend. Davidson gives a remarkable performance, which makes it even more of a shame that he’s barely acted since."

Greatest Film Tearjerking Moments A - C (51 movies items)

"The tearful and vengeful "interrogation" scene between a gun-toting Dil (Jaye Davidson) and IRA volunteer soldier Fergus (Stephen Rea), whom Dil had tied to his bed after finding out he had been complicit in the accidental death of his ex-lover - British soldier Jody (Forest Whitaker), as the song "The Crying Game" played on Dil's tape deck; Fergus told Dil that he loved him, would do anything for him and would never leave him - with Dil responding, as he laid his head on Fergus' chest/shoulder:"
