Alamo Drafthouse director of programming Greg MacLennan organizes an annual Nicholas Cage film fest called CAGED, consisting of 5 films featuring the National Treasures star—none of which are known to the audience beforehand. This year’s event, the 4th cleverly dubbed C4GED 4-Ever, featured an in-person appearance from Cage himself; the actor surprised and delighted fans with an impromptu reading of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart.
As it turned out, the Oscar-winning actor also had a hand in planning C4GED: Cage himself programmed each of the five movies that screened yesterday, and … well, he came up with one helluva lineup (he also stuck around and watched all five movies with the audience).
Here they are, in the order in which they screened:
Bringing Out The Dead
Army Of One
Lord Of War
Check out Cage blowing minds and giving his unique spin on Poe’s classic tale of horror and madness in the video below.
