At the age of 17, I got my first big break as a PA on a straight-to-video action flick starring Mickey Rourke. From there, I cut my teeth assisting on popular Emmy award winning shows like American Idol, The Amazing Race and with the original fab five on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Development […]… Continue reading Director Biography – Brock Cravy (INNOCENT BOY) — Festival for Drama in Film, Screenplays, Novels

Valley Girl (1983) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie

The movie itself Valley Girl doesn’t quite add up. Or rather, there’s a missing variable, an ‘x’ that’s impossible to find, a variable that, if found, would help make sense of why this 80s teen movie (originally meant to be a trashy exploitation money grab), starring then non-stars (and pretty much unknown) Nicolas Cage and […]… Continue reading Valley Girl (1983) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie

Rumble Fish (1983) and The Cotton Club (1984) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie

The context I’d like to start these reviews out by apologizing for already messing with the format in my second essay. Though I initially started out with the idea of writing an individual essay for each Nicolas Cage movie, I realized upon doing research of Rumble Fish that he only had a small (but important) […]… Continue reading Rumble Fish (1983) and The Cotton Club (1984) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie

The Boy in Blue (1986) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie

The movie It’s hard to make a boring sports movie – so long as you have some action shots of the sport being played, a montage, and a rise-fall-rise underdog plot, it’s easy to make a decently exciting (not original but whatever) movie. There’s a tension inherent in the sports movie formula, one that exists […]… Continue reading The Boy in Blue (1986) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie

Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie

The movie Peggy Sue Got Married starts in a weird place – immediately after the opening credits, the camera zooms out from a television commercial starring “Crazy Charlie” (a makeup-aged Nicolas Cage), a zany TV salesman, and ends at a behind the back view of Peggy Sue (Kathleen Turner) looking in the mirror and getting […]… Continue reading Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie

Vampire’s Kiss (1989) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie

The movie Say what you will about Vampire’s Kiss (and I’m prepared to say a lot), but it’s not boring. No, far from it. It’s a film so unpredictable, so jarringly incoherent and tonally offbeat that you can’t help but wonder what’s going to happen next. The end result might not be something that feels […]… Continue reading Vampire’s Kiss (1989) — Every Nicolas Cage Movie
