This Simple White Mug Is Hiding a Secret That Film Geeks Will Love
(Warning: This article contains spoilers from a 22-year-old movie.)
Nearly a quarter-century after its initial release, Bryan Singer's The Usual Suspects still manages to surprise audiences—and make it onto just about every list of "The Best Movie Endings of All Time" ever compiled. As AMC wrote in just such a list, where the film nabbed the number 21 spot, "For two hours, Kevin Spacey’s spineless Verbal plays helpless lamb being lured to Chazz Palminteri’s slaughter. But with the drop of a coffee cup, and the shaking off of a limp, the true identity of a criminal mastermind is revealed."
For fans who want to reenact the pivotal moment in which Palminteri's customs agent Dave Kujan learned he's been duped by Spacey, this simple white Kobayashi mug is the perfect prop. It's dishwasher- and microwave-safe—and yes, it comes in one piece. Of course, if you plan on dropping it dramatically to chase after Keyser Söze, you're going to have to do it in one take (or stock up and buy a couple). You can score one of the elegantly minimalist mugs on Firebox for only $13.
