The Crying Game
Stephen Rea plays an IRA member who helps kidnap Forest Whitaker for ransom demands. Whitaker begs him to find his girlfriend Dil if something should happen to him. Rea does find her, and he falls in love. One of the most famous cinematic twists came when audiences learned that the beautiful Dil, played by Jaye Davidson, is actually (shock!) a man. No biggie. Rea still loved her and took the heat for a crime she committed. Audiences at the time went crazy over the gender-bending twist.
Edward Norton plays a depressed office worker whose life goes off the rails when he meets Tyler Durden, a madcap extrovert played by Brad Pitt. The pair move into together and embark on a series of pranks and mayhem. Then they start a small army of mischief makers intent on destroying capitalist culture. Then we find out: There is no Tyler Durden! He’s just Norton’s imaginary friend. Here are 11 movies you totally forgot were Oscar winners.
