Five Favorite Films with Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage may have the most unclassifiable body of work of any actor in movies today. He began his career with teen roles in Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Valley Girl and uncle Francis Coppola's Rumble Fish, went off the wall for Raising Arizona, Wild At Heart and Vampire?s Kiss, won a Best Actor Oscar for Leaving Las Vegas and then somehow became a big-budget action star in films like The Rock, Con Air and Face/Off. The odd trajectory defines the actor to this day, but behind all of Cage's (seemingly puzzling) film choices there's been one constant: his fierce dedication to each and every role, whether he's crafting performances for Spike Jonze, Ridley Scott and Werner Herzog or headlining Disney tent-poles and comic-book capers. Read on for his Five Favorite Films and a chat about his current projects. More…
