The Life Of David Gale (2003)

This one is about a man named David Gale (Spacey) who finds himself on death row convicted of murder. He is a professor of philosophy and against capital punishment so to say he is political is an understatement. Anyhow we meet up with a journalist named Bitsey (what an awful name) who interviews Gale, and finds herself deep in one heck of a story that she didn't expect. It's not bad for a sort of crime/thriller, especially during the early 2000's because there were so darned many sub-par ones. This is definitely one of the best, yet it's still not a thrill a minute or anything, it's just got a very interesting conclusion.
