Joe (David Gordon Green, 2013)

It has been labeled Nicolas Cage’s great comeback. After years of substandard performances in, frankly, quite awful movies, he has finally embodied a character that has elements of himself. 294 more words


Review: Joe (2013)

Nicolas Cage’s career bears many similarities to a see-saw in that one minutes it’s up (The Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call – New Orleans) and the next it’s down (Trespass). 167 more words

Joe (Review)


Being a fan of horse-faced over-actor Nicolas Cage is a frustrating business. He never gives a performance that isn’t worth watching, which means that you have to sit through countless hours of untold mediocrities in the hope of watching him “lose his shit”- or better yet, give a performance that reminds you of what a good actor he could be if given the right material, something which hasn’t materialized since the one-two punch of “Kick Ass” and “Bad Lieutenant” in 2010. 683 more words

Film Review


Based on a 1991 novel by Larry Brown, “Joe” is a simple story that is told poetically with astonishing depth and almost frightening sincerity.
