A trailer for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent
19 March 2022
A cash-strapped Nicolas Cage agrees to make a paid appearance at a billionaire super fan’s birthday party, but is really an informant for the CIA since the billionaire fan is a drug kingpin and gets cast in a Tarantino movie.
But it is a little more than that. As of the time of writing The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent was enjoying a one-hundred percent rating on film and television review-aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes. It is a rare distinction, and in doing so rubs shoulders with the likes of Three Colors: Red directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski, Singin’ in the Rain from 1952, Slalom, directed by Charlène Favier, and Before Sunrise starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke.
