Arlington Road (1999)
Widowed when his FBI agent wife is killed in an operation against suspected terrorists, a college professor becomes increasingly obsessed with the culture and sub-society of these dangerous groups. The arrival of new neighbors, gives him new spirit, as they are gregarious and friendly, with a ten-year-old boy that his son can be friends with. He is even beginning to see another woman. However, he begins to suspect something is odd about the neighbors, something about the way they don’t want him to see certain parts of the house, or a set of blueprints they have there. Are his neighbors terrorists… or is the stress of losing his wife merely driving him past the point of paranoia?

“Arlington Road” is the perfect example for how thrillers should be made.

A good story, a good atmosphere, good actors and voila! you have got a good thriller. “Arlington Road” has got it all and it’s a near perfect movie that is a must see for the thriller fans.

The intense beginning sets the mood for the rest of the movie. It’s atmospheric and tense right till the good ending. I’ll admit that there are some slow moments and some distracting plot lines but it doesn’t take away the tension or ruins the atmosphere in any kind of way.

The movie is very well casted with Jeff Bridges as the more and more paranoid getting Michael Faraday and Tim Robbins as his neighbour that he begins to suspects of being a terrorist. Both main actors pull of really well and help to created the good thriller atmosphere that this movie has.

Good thriller with a great atmosphere, story, actors and ending that will stay with you forever.
