Yesterday, I went ahead and ranked what I felt were the best performances by none other than Nicolas Cage (here). This comes on the heels of my recent rave review of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, as well as one for Pig last year. Truly, we’re living in a great time to love Nic Cage. In honor of the former coming out shortly, there was an obvious Awards Radar Community Question to present to you all today. I’ve done my ranking, but what might all of yours be? Yes, we’re asking you all to choose or rank your favorite Cage turns.
Any answer is on the table, obviously, which is par for the course with our Community Question posts. Maybe you’re a fan of the more critically acclaimed stuff, like Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas, or Pig? On the other hand, maybe you want the Cage that goes nuts in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Face/Off, or Mandy? There’s more than one Cage to choose from, and wherever you lean with him, you have ample choices to select from.
As a reminder, this was my Nicolas Cage top ten:
9. It Could Happen to You
6. The Weather Man
5. Matchstick Men
1. Leaving Las Vegas
Now, it’s your turn. Where do you fall on Cage’s career? Are you with me on Leaving Las Vegas? Was Pig your pick? There are no wrong answers. So, chime in and we’ll be eager to see what you have to say. Plus, stay tuned for Cage’s latest, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, to hit theaters in a manner of days…
