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.

A clothing-optional, exceptionally sweaty Nicolas Cage stars as Ned Hanlan, the namesake of Toronto’s very own clothing-optional beach in this CBC-produced biopic of the 19th-century champion sculler by day, bootlegger by night. Dropping early in Cage’s career, THE BOY IN BLUE Is perhaps the most obscure, least-discussed entry in our UnCaged retrospective. Co-starring a very cantankerous Christopher Plummer and boasting a suspicious amount of side breast as well as shirtless Cage, this can-con erotic oddity delivers us some phenomenally out-of-place 19th-century Cage rage.

Best UnCaged Moment: just all that topless rowing through Toronto Island

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.

Programmed by Alicia Fletcher and Brendan Ross
