This has to be Scorsese's most bizarre film. It's hard for me to put a value statement on the movie...it's fantastic, yet at the same time, repels me. Nicolas Cage is his wonderful self, Scorsese's directing is spectacular & he teams up with Paul Schrader once again, creating an almost follow-up to Taxi Driver. I just don't get this one. 'Nocturnal nightmare' is a genre that I love, but where did this come from?
