THE CRYING GAME (Neil Jordan/UK/1992/114')

When "The Crying Game," opened in 1992, independent film was enjoying a renaissance of sorts. Not since the nineteen-seventies had American and British audiences been treated to such a wide variety of movies, all generally slotted for audiences that were interested in diversity--an ideological impulse that has since gone the way of fax machines. But perhaps no psychological drama from that time was as chilling--and ultimately as moving--as screenwriter and director Neil Jordan's heart-wrenching photoplay about people not seeming to be who they are. Set against IRA-generated intrigue and English repression, the second half of Jordan's eighth feature quickly flowers into a powerful dissection of the personality inherent in politics. Don't tell your friends about one actor's "secret." Hilton Als 2009
