Beautiful and fatalistic. Nic Cage and the Hoppmeister and magnetic, there really is no other way to describe it. And Dahl's direction is sublime. It's visually thrilling, like a dream. You keep wondering to yourself how much more absurd can it get? One of the best movies I've seen in a while.
Pretty great film noir, very tense in some places. Great acting from Cage, Hopper (he's in Blue Velvet territory as Lyle From Texas) and J.T. Walsh. This film has a certain atmosphere too it, keeps you interested and is pretty liable to have you on the edge of your seat. Underrated and Overlooked
