ABOUT THE UNCAGED SERIES

UnCAGED: Vol. 2 – 90s Edition

Break out your snakeskin jacket, stow your tray tables, fasten your seatbelts, and switch on the siren, UnCAGED is back! After a global pandemic put an untimely pause on the inaugural UnCAGED in mid-March of 2020, we’re back and bigger than before. For UnCAGED Volume 2, we’re looking at the master of Western Kabuki during his zenith: the 1990s. A seemingly chaotic decade that saw Cage working with bonafide arthouse auteurs including David Lynch and Martin Scorsese, while also starring in direct-to-video erotic thrillers, and of course dominating the box office in the summer of ’97 with competing action masterpieces, the ‘90s gifted the world a Cage at his purest and most dedicated to his craft. Celebrate all that makes Nicolas Cage an incomparable entertainer every Wednesday in April, only at the Revue Cinema!

Presented without irony and with a respect for theatrical presentation, UnCaged offers a variety of Cages to contemplate. Visit the in-cinema UnCAGED marketplace for all your Cage collectible needs, including last edition’s sold-out Cage Trading Cards from artist Keenan Tamblyn, Cage swag, limited edition posters, and more!

“Rise up, I.B. Bangin’ and start your life anew”

An overlooked companion piece to TAXI DRIVER, with BRINGING OUT THE DEAD Martin Scorsese and Paul Schrader return to the same darkened streets and seedy locales of their 1976 classic, this time focusing on Cage’s Frank Pierce—a New York City paramedic suffering from depression, insomnia, and occupational burnout. He wants nothing more than to be fired from his job—a task he proves himself comically incapable of. As he begrudgingly sets out on various late-night escapades, he teams up with morally questionable co-workers, including John Goodman, Ving Rhames, and Tom Sizemore. What follows is a stunning mix of infectious hang-out vibes, rambunctious nihilism, and unconventional romance when Cage meets and falls for Mary, played by Patricia Arquette (Cage’s then spouse).

Contradictory in all the best ways, BRINGING OUT THE DEAD is both haunting and hilarious, grotesque and beautiful, with Cage himself delivering a performance that is simultaneously reserved and completely deranged. A high wire balancing act of the greatest order that could only be pulled off by one of the most powerful director/star team ups. We could not be happier to close out UnCAGED with a rare 35mm screening highlighting one of Cage’s best and most underrated roles, not just of the ‘90s, but of his entire career.
