The best work ever done by Nicolas Cage. A film that kept your interest as it twisted itself inside out in front of you. Very strong cast. Chris Cooper created magic, and certainly deserved his oscar. Meryl Streep better than her material, as usual. Brian Cox dynamic, abrasive, and real. A movie about making movies. A script about writing a script. Somehow we felt that we participated in both.
I gave this movie a rating of 5 stars.
