The Genius Of Enemy Of The State, Tony Scott's Best Film

Will Leitch, writing for Deadspin (really):

“But for my money, the great Tony Scott film is Enemy of the State: a huge Hollywood hit, a scathing (and prescient) critique of government’s prying into the lives of their citizens, and, oh, by the way, a story featuring one of the most iconic characters in American cinematic history.”

Enemy … is one of those films I used to loved catching on a Friday or Saturday night, until I wore it out from re-watching. It had a blend of good actors, interesting plot and was contemporary enough in its gadgetry and theme to make the story relevant.

And I've always had a secret desire for an isolated technology lair packed to the hilt with explosives for an easy get-away. So don't come snooping in my basement.
