I just really thought I was gonna find the treasure.

After laughing to the point of tears at this montage of clips from last year's remake of The Wicker Man, it's got me wondering about Nicolas Cage's acting choices. I've never thought of him as a good actor, per se, but I enjoy his over-the-topness immensely in Wild at Heart (one of my favorite films, period) and thought his performances in Raising Arizona and Adaptation were incredibly heartfelt and earnest. Is he phoning it in on purpose in The Wicker Man? Granted, it must be pretty hard to make a line like “Oh no, not the bees!” seem believable and I am always in favor of camp, but most actors are EITHER camp or drama. Not both. Perhaps Nic Cage really IS the only one who can walk in both worlds.
