Join the Eureka Theater for the ultimate Cage match:
Raising Arizona: If ex-con Nic is your favorite Cage, buckle up for the 1987 Coen Brothers comedy Raising Arizona, in which our mercurial hero’s sleepy-eyed mugshot pose wins the heart of a police officer played by Holly Hunter. The baby bump in the road comes when they can’t conceive and decide to nab one of a set of quintuplets. Between sticking up stores for diapers, evading a Mad Max-esque baby retriever and coping with old friends who’ve recently broken out of prison, well, it ain’t Ozzie and Harriet.
Face/Off: Prefer wild-eyed, cackling Cage? Do a double take when he stars opposite John Travolta in John Woo’s over-the-top 1997 action film Face/Off. It’s both a masterpiece and totally nuts. In it, a notorious terrorist switches faces with the FBI agent on his trail. Don’t worry about how, just dig the classic Woo chases, double-fisted shootouts, Mexican stand-offs and doves. And enjoy the trippy experience of watching Travolta play Cage and Cage play Travolta, while peak ‘90s Gina Gershon and Joan Allen play their puzzled partners.
