Kiss Kiss Bang Bang ★★★★½

"Captain fuckin' magic... "

Boasting career-best performances from Downey, Kilmer, and Monaghan, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a modern film noir classic, with winning witticisms and a plot that is deliciously labyrinthine. It's a little too clever for its own good (so many meta jokes), but that's kind of why it works in the first place. On balance, not my favourite from Shane Black, but still essential viewing.
