Leaving this Movie Alone

The roles Nicolas Cage and Elisabeth Shue played in Leaving Las Vegas were outstanding but the story itself left me wondering by movies end what the point of it all was. Yeah I get the struggle of each individual character and solace they found in each other but its gratuitous nature did not justify two hours of nothing more than their hardships.

Garbage.

Easily one of the most boring movies i have ever encountered, it was literally like torture, i wasn't able to look at my computer screen for an entire hour, but i had to force myself into it so that i can review it, but i already regret doing that, because writing this makes me bored.

It's a story about a drunk lonely middle-aged man played by Nicloas cage, which isn't really a prob... read more

My favorite aspect of this movie is the fact that it was never fully explored why Nick Cage's character wanted to off himself via alcoholism. The viewer is almost forced to come into the character's life with the same info that Elizabeth Shue's character & get to know him from that vantage point. It's a reminder that, many times, the addictions of those who are addicted tend to become bigger than ... read more

" Clearly I've never particularly warmed up to romantic films up this point, I mean Hellraiser had its moments and Travis Bickle took Betsy on that lovey-dovey date at the porno theatre, but beside those...I think its fair to say Mike Figgis's tragic drama is a men's fantasy in a lot of ways, but I think that okay I mean aren't most romantic films usually female fantasies? Its good to see one from a man's perspective for a change, that isn't porn I mean. A pre-Wicker Man Nicholas Cage is in to"

" Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, like anyone else, I have noticed that the critics against Nicolas Cage have been drastically increasing during the last 25 years and, for a very long time, I was actually defending the guy. However, I have to admit it, the situation concerning his career is nowadays pretty much dramatic as he keeps showing up in some really dubious projects. Still, there was a time w"

"11.7. Riipaiseva kuvaus alkoholismista, toisesta välittämisestä ja kuolemasta. Oikeastaan myös parasta näkemääni Cagea. Ennen pidin ukkoa lähinnä ylinäyttelevänä nettimeeminä, jos pikkuisen liioitellaan. Tällä kertaa pysyy homma hanskassa. Lipitin olutta leffan aikana, joskin ankarampi ryyppäys tuntui lopputekstien jälkeen varsin epämiellyttävältä ajatukselta."
