Watching this I could tell immediately what the director's plan was.
"Hey Nic. Love you man. Can you please sort of dress up like Con Air Nic and behave like Castor Troy Nic?`
And Nic was like," Yeah for sure and I might drop in the odd weird completely out of character stuff as well?"
And the Director says:"We've somehow managed to get a Badlamenti composition and some Marilyn Manston so let's pretend this is Lost Highway but I've no idea how to shoot it"
Nic Cage "WhoooooooYeahhh"
