This film typifies a "must see" simply because you must see it to believe it.

On paper it sounds ludicrous -- Werner Herzog directs Nicolas Cage in not-exactly a remake nor sequel to Abel Ferrara's notorious 1992 cops and corruption freakout. In reality it is a deft slight-of-hand trick, one of the likely cinematic wonders of the year, a film that manages to be outrageous, ridiculous, hilarious and still somehow deeply moving. Cage cycles through every stage of his on-screen career -- from slapstick comedy to heartfelt emotionalism to oddball action hero -- like an iPod on shuffle. This film typifies a "must see" simply because you must see it to believe it.
