    Face/Off

    ★★★★½

    Out of the Nicolas Cage 90’s action trilogy I would say this is my “least favourite” but at the same time, it’s quite easily the objectively best film of the bunch. As if it wasn’t obvious enough that Nicolas Cage is the GOAT, the fact I watched this in a crowded movie theatre and he had the audience eating out of the palm of his hand from a movie he filmed 25 years ago as if he where performing live…

    I'm still letting this one percolate, it's definitely not a one and done viewing kind of movie as is the case with every Matt Reeves joint. This is as different from the previous Batman films as all those are from each other. It's an unashamedly slow burn murder mystery in the vein of Seven and Zodiac with a very thick and oppressive atmosphere.

    This is the first time I've actually seen Gotham city on screen since the Burton films. Rain…
