The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent ★★★½

Nic Cage is fantastic slyly (or broadly over the top, as is his style) skewering his public persona, but the real star here is Pedro Pascal, who maintains incredible puppy dog love for Cage throughout this weird amalgam of a character study that turns into a Nicolas Cage action film.

Which was the point, sure. But I could have watched a full movie of the first half - their chemistry together is something to behold.
