We don’t want to say we saved the best for last, but we definitely saved the best for last. Infamously unavailable and presented in the most appropriate way: a glorious, unrated director’s cut laserdisc, ZANDALEE introduces us to a mustachioed Nicolas Cage as Johnny, a recently-released convict in New Orleans (Cage’s beloved home).
A tortured abstract painter by night and vending machine repair man by day, Johnny reunites with his best friend Thierry (Judge Reinhold with a competing mustache) and finds himself smack dab in the middle of a love triangle with the titular Zandalee (Erika Anderson of “Twin Peaks: Invitation to Love” fame). With supporting roles from Marisa Tomei, Steve Buscemi, and Joe Pantoliano, as well as a lot of bayou crocodiles, ZANDALEE is the erotic 90s masterpiece you never knew you needed. This is A+ UnCaged.
