It's probably Cage's best performance since Joe - but this one is quieter, more nuanced.

I watched the movie on Friday and can't stop thinking about it since. On purpose, I've read your piece after I just finished mine and sometimes it's scary how much we think alike. Maybe not in the foreseeable future, but I always picture my old years sitting on a porch somewhere in the countryside accompanied by a few animals. Maybe with friends living close by, popping over every now and then to have a beer and talk. But perhaps this is a fantasy that calms me down now and will change over time. I'm not sure. We'll see.

Good read, John.
