The Evolution of Nicolas Cage’s Hair


Have I mentioned that I love In the Hall of the Mountain King? The rest of the Peer Gynt Suites less so, but they’re still worth a listen — if you’ve somehow not already heard them through their gross overuse in all manner of media since.

    Because I once, long ago, enjoyed a movie he was in, I feel I owe it to Mr. Cage to point out that he spells his first name “Nicolas”

    Oh, so he does! I’ll correct that right now, in the title if not the URL slug.

    Also, I’m not particularly a fan of Cage’s, but I’m no hater either. I’m indifferent about his body of work at best.

    I think Cage is a brilliant actor who also, unfortunately, can’t seem to turn anything down, so the great bulk of his career is…sub-par? We have Adaptation, Raising Arizona, and Leaving Las Vegas, but then we’re stuck with everything else. Also, Face Off is how I decide whether or not I can take a human being seriously: if you like it, then all of the words that come out of your mouth, after you’re foolish enough to reveal what should be a dark, shameful secret, sound like, “Blah” or “Durh.” Sometimes there are subtle differences in inflection or speed that can convey hunger, happiness and pain, or perhaps a looming bout of incontinence, but otherwise it’s all basically the same sad sound.

    This clearly does not prove evolution. Each of these hairs is a distinct “kind”. Please show me the intermediate forms.

    Unless you can do this, you clearly have not made your case.

    On a more cinematic (and slightly more serious) note…how can an actor do films that are span the spectrum from “complete and utter shit” to “really interesting and well worth watching”?
