This Saturday: Thrillers with a Twist

With the possible exception of romantic comedy, no other film genre has proved as enduring as the action/adventure/suspense thriller, perhaps because it translates so well into different cultures and transcends language in its dependence on iconic images and situations for effect.  Tonight's films are exemplary of the genre's universal appeal.
