VIDEO: Nic Cage Loses It, Again and Again

In this montage, the Oscar-winning actor is stripped down to his essence: a sudden detonation of crazy.

Just in time for Thanksgiving comes a video that makes me grateful for something special: Nicolas Cage.

Here he is in a mind-pummeling chain of the cinematic freak-outs he's delivered over 30 years. Many of these arbitrary montages run out of steam pretty quick. Not this one. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the compiler set it to the agonizing soundtrack of Requiem for a Dream. But really, it's about imagining what it's like to be in Nicolas Cage's head.

Or anywhere near him.

Keep this video handy over the holidays, since the Cage explosion is probably exactly what you're imagining in your head as you suffer through yet another excruciating forced family dinner.
