Mathstick Men * Ridley Scott * 2003

Posted in drama, thriller and tagged on by .

Nicholas Cage is an actor that can pull me over the line for seeing a film. “Mathstick Men” has a not too original story. Cage is a swindler whose life changes when his fourteen year old daughter comes into his life and he teaches her his profession. Quite similar to “Leon” for example. The story develops and ends not too surprisingly. Nicholas Cage is the perfect actor for a neurotic criminal with many tics, fear of dirt and open spaces. Cage really carries the film and makes it into a nice comedy in the vein of for example Coen-films. For some reason the videoshop had this film under “thriller”. <30/8/04><3>
