This is a pretty average thriller from the late 90s. It stars Nick Cage as a private investigator investigating a snuff film. Along the way he interacts with various well known actors, from a young Norman Reedus, to sex shop worker Joaquin Pheonix, James Gandolphini, and Peter Stormare. It was wildly uncomfortable, which is what the movie was going for, so props to it for that.

FINALLY A SCENE WHERE NICHOLAS CAGE CAN SCREAM IN INCOHERENT RAGE AND IT MAKES SENSE...
or THIS FILM SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE PERFECT TIME TO "IMMORTALISE" A COUPLE "HOLLYWOOD" STANDARDS...
The Snuff Film; urban legend or fact, opens the play with your lead Cage as the sympathetic family man doing a dirty job where it's needed.
Joaquin Phoenix is completely believable as sacrificial lamb to Cage's journey; you can see now, he's a less attractive Johnny Depp - as himself in costume in every role he plays. Don't expect Olivier and you can get by... in the black & white world of film underground two dimensions cast all the shadow you need, so rev up the murdering, drugging, lounge wearing all day depravity and keep telling yourself it's only a movie; and Shumacher has been quite lately, so maybe the authorities caught him at last.
