Bryan Singer’s 1995 ‘The Usual Suspects’ is, to us, one of the best mystery/ crime movies ever made. The film follows the interrogation of a small-time con man who is one of only two survivors of a massacre on a ship docked at the Port of Los Angeles. It stars Stephen Baldwin, Gabriel Byrne, Benicio del Toro, Kevin Pollak and a totally unknown yet Kevin Spacey. The film quickly became a ‘cult movie’ and is generally considered a modern classic.
Our love and devotion for this movie made us produce a commemorative skate deck for the upcoming Spring/ Summer 17 Skateboard Cataloguethat paid homage to it, but this time, we wanted to add a personal touch, so we ended up calling our own ‘usual suspects’, the Hydroponic Skate Team riders, for a quick police line up.
Fran Martinez, Enrique Giles, Roman Lishchinskyy, Edu Martin and Sufian Dahbi became small-time crooks for a day, following orders from the deadly Kaiser Sozé.
