LOOKING GLASS Trailer
Considering the amount of people online who seem to like Nicolas Cage in an ironic way, it's easy to forget he can do great work when working with talented directors, like in Looking Glass.
Looking Glass stars Nicolas Cage and Robin Tunney as Ray and Maggie, a couple who buy a deserted motel in a small town in the middle of the desert. They have no experience in the business but they want to start their lives anew. Once they move into their new house Ray discovers a secret pathway in the basement that allows him to spy on their guests. After a woman turns up dead in one of their rooms, the locals start to suspect Ray and Maggie are running a Bates-style motel. As tensions start to rise, Ray sets out to solve the murder in order to clear their name.
Looking Glass is familiar territory for its director Tim Hunter. Hunter not only directed the 1980s cult classic River’s Edge which starred a very young Keanu Reeves, Crispin Glover and Dennis Hopper, but he also directed three episodes of Twin Peaks in the early ’90s. While River’s Edge focused on the emotional aftermath of a murder and the question of complicity after the fact, Looking Glass is more of a whodunit. Considering the amount of people online who seem to like Nicolas Cage in an ironic way, it’s easy to forget he can do great work when working with talented directors such as Hunter. Let’s hope Hunter has managed to bring out the best Cage and Tunney have to offer.
Looking Glass is directed by Tim Hunter and stars Nicolas Cage and Robin Tunney. Looking Glass will be released in select theatres and on VOD and Digital HD in the U.S. on February 16th, 2018 with an as of yet unknown U.K. release date. For international release dates click here.
