Plot Synopsis:

Martin Scorsese's surreal film is a rush of adrenaline, sparked by Robert Richardson's frenetic camera work. As Frank, the unraveling paramedic who works in Hell's Kitchen in the early 1990s, Nicolas Cage's eyes convey a seemingly endless range of emotions. The film plays like a hypercomic TAXI DRIVER, with a cast of characters that are ghostly, haunted, and on the verge of insanity. An assured supporting cast is highlighted by Ving Rhames, whose Marcus is a raucous religious fanatic.
