The Young Americans

Play Dead Performed by Björk
The movie is just an average cop flick shot in UK setting. The best thing about this movie is that one of Bjork's best songs -- Play Dead -- was featured in the movie. The original music video for this song also featured clips of the movie. The video was actually better than the movie. Check it out if you want to see early footage of Thandie Newton and Viggo Mortenson before they became big stars. Thandie Newtwon especially looks a lot different back then. Most of the other British actors are unrecognizable at least to US viewers. It's worth a look but not that great. The young British guy playing the lead reminds me a lot of River Phoenix.
