Flying has become a routine of our modern lives. It can also create an opportunity for blackmail.
In the 2005 movie Red Eye, Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) hates flying with a passion. On a flight to Miami, she sits next to Jackson Rippner (Cillian Murphy). The conversation starts off as regular small talk until Jackson reveals that he has ulterior motives. If Lisa does not help Jackson assassinate a politician, her father will be killed.
This movie is brilliant. If there was one film to describe as a thriller, this film would be it. Murphy is truly terrifying, reaching the limits that only a villain in an Alfred Hitchcock film would reach. For her part, McAdams fear of flying is only heightened by the very difficult decision that she knows she has to make.
I absolutely recommend it.
