Leaving Las Vegas (1995)

Ben Sanderson, an alcoholic Hollywood screenwriter who lost everything because of his drinking, arrives in Las Vegas to drink himself to death. There, he meets and forms an uneasy friendship and non-interference pact with prostitute Sera.


The movie I point to when people say Nicolas Cage can't act. Just because he chooses not to doesn't mean he can't. There was a time when he took very good roles.
