The Interview is a small 1998 Australian film starring Hugo Weaving before he was an international star, as a man grabbed from his home by the police and interviewed for a crime he may or may not have committed. On the one hand, there's a procedural element to this that makes the police station really live as behind the scenes, office politics run rampant and detectives feel the pressure to bring results. In the interview room, Weaving shines bright, and whether a regular Joe or a murderer, he's in a duel with these detectives. Because whether he did it or not (and the film moves from ambiguity to certainty and back again on this matter), the object lesson is that things have to be done correctly to get the perp, and the coppers may be their worst enemies. Well worth watching, even once you think they may have lost the plot, it's all part of the game the script is playing.
