    ★★★½

    Utter crap film that proves without a doubt that Christopher is the least talented member of the Coppola clan. But, and it's a big but, there is one glorious reason to watch this turd and that's for the Cagiest, ragiest performance of all-time from our acting 'national treasure', Mr. Nicolas Cage.

The film works best when it focuses on mood and marinates in its strangeness and unease.

    Technically everything is quite brilliant, with Garland's expertly controlled visual style leading the way. The lucid dream-like world of the Shimmer is evoked with…
