The Complete Works Ep. 7: Nicolas Cage – BIRDY (1984)

Nicolas Cage Birdy

The Complete Works is an in-depth, introspective, and, quite frankly, insane idea – FilmBook contributor Mike Smith and his co-host Mike DeCriscio are going to take a look at every film in the filmography of Nicolas Cage, one crazy screaming scene at a time. This week, Mike and Mike discuss Nicolas Cage’s role in 1984’s Birdy.

Nicolas Cage plays Al Columbato, alongside Matthew Modine, John Harkins, Sandy Baron, Karen Young, and Bruno Kirby, among others. Birdy was directed by Alan Parker and written by Sandy Kroopf and Jack Behr.
