Flick of the Day

Director: F. Gary Gray
Actors: Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Spacey, David Morse, Ron Rifkin, Paul Giamatti, John Spencer, Siobhan Fallon, J.T. Walsh
Year: 1998

Synopsis: A wrongfully-accused police negotiator takes an office hostage, to find out who really killed his partner.

This fantastic nail-bitter stars Samuel L. Jackson (in a perfect role) as a police negotiator, who is framed for the murder of his partner. Jackson takes an office full of people hostage, in order to solve the mystery. When the police try to talk him down, he asks for a negotiator (Kevin Spacey in a pre-"American Beauty" role) from another department to help him. This film is wonderfully done by a young F. Gary Gray (only his third project).
