The Perfect Host is probably the best movie I have seen all year, and it’s going to be hard for any other to top this perfection in these remaining few months. Do not watch the trailer and do not try to find out more about this movie, it will spoil the fun! Just trust me on this one, it is something that you will love. David Hyde Pierce was phenomenal, I mean I knew that he is a good actor, but this good… Apart from the “big things”, the little things in his performance were the thing that I loved so much. That subtle look, or an almost unnoticeable movement of his hand are the things that fascinated me. Clayne Crawford is known for his roles in various TV series, so he is a familiar face, and his performance was also satisfactory. Due to the nature of the movie, this is not going to be a standard review with links and trailers, but a shorter version. It pains me that I cannot share with you all the things I loved in it and the twists and turns that got me so excited that I almost regained faith in modern cinema. Such coherent, logical but still surprising and totally believable storytelling as seen in this movie is something that Hollywood needs now. I would rather watch this movie ten times then see 10 minutes of another mainstream crap.

And now something about the plot, John Taylor is a small time criminal who’s not having a good day. After being shot in a robbery he’s in desperate need of help, and in this condition he decides to somehow get in one of the pretty houses in a posh neighborhood that he’s in. The first person turns him down, but then he knocks on a door of Warwick Wilson, an unsuspecting victim, who eventually lets him in his house. Warwick is making dinner for his friends that are about to arrive when John finally shows his true face and from this moment on, everything is fucked up…
