Nicolas Cage has a unique place in popular culture and has found a niche audience for those (like myself) who seek out movies that are “so bad they’re good.” Films like Mandy, Prisoners of the Ghostland, and Willy’s Wonderland have reinvented Cage as the face of creative B-movies. Cage appears to be repurposing past cinematic flops and turning them into badges of honor.
In the The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent Nicolas Cage plays a fictionalized version of himself who must accept a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a dangerous superfan (Pedro Pascal). Things take a wildly unexpected turn when Cage is recruited by a CIA operative and forced to live up to his own legend, channeling his most iconic and beloved on-screen characters in order to save his family. Get ready for Nick Cage in his career defining performance as… Nick Cage.
