Pre-order the Grosse Pointe Blank Steelbook now!
The Film: A depressed hitman on a job in his hometown gets dragged into going to his high school reunion – it’s a premise that could either end up as the cheesiest b-movie of all time or a cult classic. Thankfully, with John Cusack giving a hilarious and characteristically po-faced performance as the aforementioned crestfallen killer, the film transcends its ‘one-joke’ plot and ends up sketching out one of the quirkiest dark romantic comedies of the 90s.
Also featuring a soundtrack by punk legend Joe Strummer, and strong supporting appearances – especially from Minnie Driver and Dan Aykroyd, the film currently holds a 79% ‘Fresh’ rating on ratings site Rotten Tomatoes with Film4 Critic Daniel Etherington calling it “One of the true delights of 1990s American cinema.”
The Director: Grosse Pointe Blank was directed by American director George Armitage, and is perhaps his best-known film. He also directed the Alec Baldwin action-thriller Miami Blues.
You’ll like this if: you’re looking for a Cusack movie with a tone somewhere in-between Broadway Danny Rose and Say Anything. Likewise, fans of equally smart, kooky late 80s / early 90s comedies like Heathers, or even Clueless, should be able to get into Grosse Pointe Blank.
