The Three Craziest Moments of Nic Cage's New Rage , Ranked
8 July 2014
Excerpt: How has there not already been a Nicolas Cage movie called Rage ? That title could fit many of the Drive Angry star's late-career time-wasters. Here it works best as an imperative rather than an announcement of theme: You may feel some anger if you pay to watch this. Or you may not, as Rage offers exactly what you think a Nic Cage movie called Rage would, except maybe for continually inspired lunacy.
Excerpt: Dennis Twist is a boringly average guy. White, suburban, and if you’re really into Scooby Doo and have a weird thing for Shaggy, I guess he could be considered good looking, too. Yet despite his overall blandness, Dennis has somehow managed to score himself a successful wife who is not only blond but is genuinely nuts about him.

Sally Potter is one such artist of the cinema; Rage is an interesting experiment but dramatically superficial. A kid named Michelangelo spends a week backstage at a New York fashion show.
