Event description

Description

This Spring the Revue Cinema unleashes some of the rarest, most compelling, and intriguingly perplexing deep dive masterpieces in lauded thespian Nicolas Cage’s filmography with UnCaged: The B-Sides and Rarities of Nicolas Cage.

*RED ROCK WEST -- PRESENTED ON 35mm!

Fans of MANDY will appreciate master of modern neo-noir John Dahl’s (THE LAST SEDUCTION, JOY RIDE) erotic southern-fried crime flick RED ROCK WEST. Cage plays an unemployed drifter who, after answering in the affirmative to a stranger asking “…are you here for the job,” is mistaken for the hitman hired to kill a wealthy man’s wife (Lara Flynn Boyle). When the real hitman (Dennis Hopper) shows up, complications ensue. Destined for direct-to-video until a fateful TIFF screening garnered much praise and a 4-star review from Roger Ebert, RED ROCK WEST inspired a small indie-led theatrical campaign leading to its eventual critical reappraisal.

Best UnCaged Moment: an opening credit sequence featuring one-armed push-ups on an Arizona highway.

About UnCaged: The B-Sides and Rarities of Nicolas Cage

This Spring the Revue Cinema unleashes some of the rarest, most compelling, and intriguingly perplexing deep-dive masterpieces in lauded thespian Nicolas Cage’s filmography with UnCaged: The B-Sides and Rarities of Nicolas Cage. Mined from some of Cage’s most criminally underrated direct-to-video thrillers, this will likely be your first and only chance to see these ‘80s and ‘90s oddities theatrically. From rarely-screened ‘90s erotic thrillers, to obscure Can-con biopics, and time travelling fantasies, we have four (plus one mystery film) Cage entries screening every Thursday night in March. This retro isn’t for the casual Cage-er, it’s for the devoted, the aficionados who wish to move beyond the obvious A-list Cage and unlock the darkest depths of his imagination. Presented without irony and with a respect for theatrical presentation, UnCaged offers a treasure trove of Cages to discover.
