Leaving Las Vegas

4

With a deservedly Oscar-winning performance from Nic Cage, Leaving Las Vegas is a downbeat exploration of a suicidal alcoholic and the only woman - - Elisabeth Shue's troubled hooker - - who accepts him for what he is. While the subject matter is undeniably depressing, there's still enough warmth and humour to prevent it becoming relentlessly bleak. Mike Figgis' best offering in donkey's.
