I wish I had a kid named verbal

It would be so cool to name a kid verbal after the character in The Usual Suspects. It is a movie that I admire. I just watched it over the weekend and I had forgotten how exceptionally good Kevin Spacey was in the film. There was a great juxtaposition between him and Chazz Palminteri. I hesitate to call it chemistry as they didn’t interact all that much. Verbal Kint was the slickest, smartest character in film history until Hannibal Lecktor came along, and I like Verbal better. I’d enjoy playing chess with the guy.

I must make an effort to see some more Kevin Spacey movies. I wish I could think of a list of them off the top of my heat. K-Pax is all that comes to mind. I think that would definitely be worth seeing.

Man, He's Worked A Lot

Out of my own curiosity I went to IMDB (which is a pain to listen to with a screenreader even if you don't hate them) to look up what Kevin Spacey's done.
TONS!

I've cut and pasted a list of films, excluding TV shows and appearances and where he was listed as "narrator", in reverse chronological order.
No idea if it'll be helpful or a pain.

Re: Man, He's Worked A Lot

I came up with a similar list about the time you sent yours. I, too, am surprised at how much Kevin Spacey has done. I am still more surprised at how many I have already seen. After conversation with a friend I am taking his advice and looking up Shipping News (haven't seen it) K-PAX (haven't seen it) American Beauty (saw it, didn't like it, giving it another chance) and I am ignoring his advice and seeing Pay It Forward.

Glengarry Glen Ross is in there somewhere too, but maybe not for a while. It takes me a while to get through a movie.
