Somehow this film both gave away a crucial scene in the trailer AND somehow managed to deliver a film very different from what I thought it would be from viewing the trailer. I enjoyed this film immensely but it actually might just be a 😊 in a lot of ways. What made me choose 🤩 instead is that there’s a specific exchange between Cage and Pedro Pascal’s character that’s just so wonderfully delightful, it took it to the next level for me. Is Cage going to go back to making a shit-ton of low-budget indie films after this again? Probably maybe…but it’s Nic FUCKING Cage and for the most part we’ll be entertained.
THE UNBEARABLE OF MASSIVE TALENT is now playing in theatres.
