The Movie: Raising Arizona (1987)
Let’s jump back to a classic of the Nic Cage canon, Raising Arizona. Not only does Cage become a live-action cartoon as H.I. McDunnough, matched only by an equally wild performance from Holly Hunter.
Dylan’s a dummy and mistakenly said Inside Man when he was actually talking about A Serious Man. And yet that’s still not the dumbest thing he said about Coen Brothers movies. Looking at you, Ladykillers defender.
