Popcorn Culture - Throwback Tuesday: Leaving Las Vegas

Leaving Las Vegas has been called many things - powerful, dark, and poignant. It's also the movie that rewarded Nicolas Cage with an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his visceral performance as Ben Sanderson. In this episode, we're taking it back to 1995 and revisiting Sanderson's fateful one-way trip to Vegas, where he meets Sera, a prostitute, and moves in with her. We also discuss if Leaving Las Vegas has aged well, what happened to this Nic Cage, and why this brand of film isn't as popular as it used to be.
