8MM Reviews:

8MM is a very dark, disturbing movie that isn't for everyone. Nicolas Cage puts in an perfect performance as a personal detective called Tom Welles who is hired to investigate whether a snuff movie is true or acted. His adventure takes him farther and farther into the realm of pornography. Each minute of this movie is suspenseful and riveting. I also found Joaquin Phoenix's performance to be outstanding as well. This film does a unbelievable job of creating a dark mood and exploring the motives and drives behind its characters. One of Cage's best, and a severely under-rated film.


Firstly, this movie is hugely under-rated. For those reviewers who call this movie a "waste of time" or zone it in the "hall of shame", maybe they could go back to watching more obvious and easy films. 8mm focuses on "snuff" films and follows Nicholas Cage as he ventures into the dark underworld of the pornographic industry. I'm not a nice fanatic of Nicholas Cage (I still wonder how he ever made it as a film star), but in 8mm felt he redeemed himself from past performances. Another actors in the movie place on nice performances, notably Joaquin Pheonix, and James Gandolfini (of Sopranos).What makes the movie worth watching though is the emotion, dark imagery and tense moments throughout the film. The story too is very well thought out although does have a several holes and untouched territories that may have helped develop the movie further. There is no Hollywood ending, forced propaganda, or marketing. What you do receive is graphic scenes, moderate violence, and an insight into "snuff" films (which really is quite disturbing).Having told that this film is not for the faint hearted, so if you're a "puppy-dogs and ice-cream" type of person I'd recommend watching something else. If however, you feel you will be able to stomach such a movie then prepare yourself for a moving film, which will leave you feeling that tiny bit darker at the end.I highly suggest this film. 8/10


I'll never forget first seeing this movie in the theater. When I heard that this movie was written by the same writer as "Seven", I expected a truly sick and twisted film. Actually don't receive me wrong, this most certainly is a sick and twisted film, but it wasn't nearly as graphic as I expected. Maybe that is due to this movie having a various director, but nonetheless the movie wasn't as graphic as I'd expected. With that said, and having watched this movie a number of times, I still wouldn't suggest this movie to everyone. If you like thrillers and can handle the topics of pornography and "snuff" films, then you could definitely give this movie a chance.I'm a tiny surprised that this movie has such a weak rating on IMDB. I can see why someone wouldn't like it, but I can't see why it would have such a weak rating. I would assume that most viewers couldn't handle the topics and therefore gave the movie a weak rating.All of the actors involved in this movie did a very nice job. Nicholas Cage was nice as everytime (sometimes a tiny over-acting, but most of the time he was great). James Gandolfini, Joaquin Phoenix, Peter Storemare, Anthony Heald, Catherine Keener, and the rest of the helping cast all pulled off solid performances.Joel Schumacher really needs to stick with movies like this. He really does a nice job with thriller/drama kind movies (and needs to steer clear of certain super-hero films). Joel did a nice job with this movie and I look forward to his next work.The only complaint I have about the movie is the music. There were some times were the melody was excellent or tolerable, but there were others where it was just horrible and detracted from the film. Some of the melody in the movie was too bizarre and didn't fit with the film.Like I said, I wouldn't suggest this to everyone, but I thought this was an perfect film. I hope you play the film. Thanks for reading,-Chris
