Holy Moses. I recently watched One False Move (1992), a thriller directed by Carl Franklin and written by Billy Bob Thorton and Tom Epperson. I’ve never heard this film come up in conversations about ’90s thrillers, but my Lord is it an apex of the genre. It’s a genuinely character-driven story, where the “twists” actually make sense in regards to the drama and the players occupying it. Heck, even Ebert gave it a perfect score when it came out. Uncompromising, authentic to the location, and wicked intense, One False Move needs to be up in your eyeballs ASAP. It’s available to rent on iTunes.
