definitely, 100% worth it.

it hit home especially for me because i've been to all the locations in the film and i know exactly what they're talking about.
I had a feeling that it would be quite laughable but with a genuine poignancy. On my rental list

Still quite unimpressive.

the film, maybe, but Cage's acting carries the entire weight of that movie.

He's brilliant in Leaving Las Vegas- one of my all time faves.

that's two for nicolas cage.

if you take an average of all his films, he's mediocre.

that's what happens when you accept every single movie role offered to you.

No doubt about it though he has been in some utter dirge over the last few years and how dare he remake The Wicker Man- the tosser.

i hated him for that too.

but planet earth's worst actor is still keanu reeves. HE'S mediocre in everything he does, mostly because he doesn't act.

Brilliant. I didn't understand half of it but it's such a wonderfully inventive film. All the more impressive being made more than 60 years ago. But I love anything that has to do with stage actors and theater (even though I hate the real theater, go figure.) Sort of gives me incentive to finally try and read some Shakespeare...8/10
