Brilliant and Fascinating!
12 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot believe how many people have ragged on this film! Then again, it is a work of art, and by definition will be appreciated by some and hated by some. The thing is, everyone keeps ranting on about how "confusing" it was and how it "jumped around too much" but I believe firmly that was very much intended. Cage's character was experiencing those exact feelings. He was on the brink of madness where absolutely nothing made sense, and in a typical "Hollywood" movie you'd sit back and be able to decipher the character's madness. You'd be able to "see" where he cracked and why and where he was going with it. In this one, you experience what the character experiences. You have no idea what the heck is going on, and I DIG that! I think this is truly a fantastic film. I've seen it countless times and it never fails to entertain.

A must see if you're into the dark comedy genre. There are so many little moves and bits of dialog that get overlooked the first couple of times - so if you enjoy it - see it again so you can pick up on the little things. I highly recommend the DVD with the commentary as it points these type of things out.

I'm not crazy about Cage, but this movie remains in my Top 5 of all time. I wish everyone could enjoy it as much as me.
