The 5 minute feature film, volume 1: Trespass
As a companion piece to my analysis of Nicolas Cage’s current career, below is a visual summation of his 2011 movie Trespass, co-starring Nicole Kidman and Cam Gigandet. I’ve edited the entire thing down to just under 5 minutes, briefly glossing over important plot points (without major spoilers), yet you’ll still get the sense of just how repetitive the movie is. There are plenty of examples of the gun waving and threatening that is the film’s raison d’etre, some of the dialogue, some of Nicole Kidman’s lip implants, and lots of villainous scowling. The soundtrack features a combination of the film’s dialogue and selections from Richard Strauss’ An Alpine Symphony. If there is a positive reaction to my reductive interpretation, I’ll edit other movies down to this more palatable length.
