|8MM covers the story of private eye Tom Welles, played by Nicholas Cage. He is contracted to find out if a movie filmed on 8mm reel uncovered in a wealthy man's safe truly depicts the brutal murder of a young girl. Who is the girl? Is the film even real. Tom has to lower himself into the sleazy world of illegal hardcore porn where every taste is catered to, including snuff films. |
I found the movie to be fantastic with a strong performance by Cage and an ending that will shock you. At times I found some of the subject matter to be extremely tasteless even to the point of being sickening, however could understand why director Schumacher needed to take us there in order for us to understand the underground society of illicit porn.
With a cast of bizarre immoral characters, 8mm will keep you on your toes all the way through the movie.
