Say what you want about Nicolas Cage, we all think that the man is a living legend. The star of such recent films as Dog Eat Dog (which we loved) and Army Of One turned up at his own film festival at the iconic the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, and even stayed behind to do a 45 minute-plus Q+A, followed by a special reading.
The organisers of the festival have apparently invited Cage down to the festival (named C4ged) every year for its four year history, and this year he actually made an appearance.
Fans were treated to showings of films Bangkok Dangerous, Joe, Bringing Out the Dead, Army of One and Lord of War – all chosen by him- and then the Q+A and reading of Edgar Allan Poe’s short story The Tell-Tale Heart.
With the internet being the internet, footage of the event has managed to find its way online. »

For the past three years, Alamo Drafthouse film programmer Greg MacLennan has paid tribute to Nicolas Cage in the form of Caged, a marathon of movies starring the actor, partly in the hope that the Oscar winner would attend. While that plan may seem to be about as ludicrous as the plot of Face/Off, it is one that had a happy ending yesterday when Cage actually did turn up at the fourth annual event in Austin, Texas.

Nicolas Cage fans in Austin, Texas got what can only be described as a gift from the movie gods over the weekend when Cage made a surprise appearance to C4GED, the fourth annual marathon of Nicolas Cage movies screened in celebration of the month of his birth.
While a packed theater was singing the happy birthday song, Cage walked out on stage and immediately launched into a reading of “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allen Poe. The next 12 hours were spent watching Cage films that the actor personally programmed. Cage also presided over an in-theater marriage proposal.
