speaking of I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, John Rhys-Myers, who played Owen's younger brother in that film is the protagonist in Woody Allen's latest, Match Point. what makes Match Point germain is, it isn't a comedy at all, it's a serious drama that ultimately becomes a crime film, with as dark an ending as anything Thompson, Cain or Ellroy could imagine. I guarantee, nobody, ESPECIALLY people on this list, will see coming how this beauty turns out at the end

set in London, Rhys-Myers is a former pro tennis player, working class Irish, who marries into British money. there he becomes dangerously obsessed with his brother-in-law's fiancee, a struggling American actress played by Scarlett Johanson. what's unique in this type of film is that every single character is enormously sympathetic; Rhys-Myers so much so that audiences forgive him the unforgiveable

Woody Allen, man. who knew?
