The Nicolas Cage podcast that discusses the insanity and wisdom of the National Treasure one masterpiece at a time. We also go on fun non-Cage movie history tangents. We research Nic Cage so you don't have to.
In this episode, the gang discusses Cage’s directorial debut (okay, also the only film he directed, so far) Sonny. James Franco plays Sonny, a former-gigolo who returns home to New Orleans from war, searching for a “normal” life. Instead, he finds a lot of titties and ass. Definitely watch for Cage’s acting as “Acid Yellow” and for Linda’s very brief report at the end on Lisa Marie Presley and Nic Cage.Sorry, Adrian was experiencing a technical issue with his recording equipment. So, the audio kinda sucks, but we fixed it in the next episode. I promise!
This week, we discussed John Woo’s WWII film, Windtalkers. It was supposed to be about the Navajo Marines (“Codetalkers”, played by Adam Beach and Roger Willie) but it ended up being more about Cage’s broken-soldier character. Oh, yeah! It also has Christian Slater, Mark Ruffalo (The Gruffalo), and Peter Stormare!
On a very special episode of Cage’s Kiss we cover his work in A Christmas Cage - er Carol. We discuss the terror of a rodent infestation and how this movie would have been better if it were crossed with Hellraiser.
