The Nick Cage Matrix

Nicholas Cage has provided us with some good performances and some just plain insane performances. In an effort to categorize his various movie roles, the people at have created the Nicholas Cage Matrix. This handy graph organizes Cage’s performances in terms of quality on the y-axis and an x-axis of “serious, po-faced, issue movies and balls-out, crack-piped, bug-eyed brainwrongs.” Check out the larger graph at theshiznit. I’d like to point out, by the way, that they correctly put Cage’s best performance (as brothers Charlie and Donald Kaufman in Adaptation) closest to “brilliant.”
