You Can't Prepare For Where The Truth Will Take You.
Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage stars with Joaquin Phoenix and Catherine Keener in an electrifying thriller from the writer of Seven. Directed by Joel Schumacher (The Client, Batman Forever, A Time to Kill), this dramatic story follows one man's obsessive search for the truth about a six-year-old crime and his ultimate discovery of the truth about himself.

"A riveting, intelligent thriller highlighted by Joel Schumacher's dark shadows and Nicolas Cage's riveting performance. The darkest, most relentless thriller since Silence of the Lambs.  Alex Simon, Venice Magazine
"Thumbs up from me for this absorbing adult thriller. My thumb is jolted up. Joel Schumacher... finds a dark, frightening tone for the material.  Roger Ebert, Siskel & Ebert

Editor's Note
Nicholas Cage plays Tom Welles, a straight-laced surveillance specialist. His innocent, naive world begins to unravel when he is hired by the widow of an industrialist to investigate what she has shockingly discovered in her late husband's safe. It appears to be a snuff film of a young girl being murdered. In order to discover the truth, he must enter the city's seedy underworld, guided by porn-store clerk Max California (Joaquim Phoenix, LADDER 49).

Professional Reviews

San Francisco Examiner 7 of 10
The strength of 8MM comes partly from Cage's understated portrayal of... a family man with a genuine grimace at all the kinky things that pass for entertainment. But what really makes the film work is the great cast director Joel Schumacher has assembled around his star. Joaquin Phoenix has a particularly juicy role as a porn shop employee... This is not a movie for the squeamish, by any means. But for those who like their thrillers dark and their heroes a bit more complicated and flawed than the average shoot-without-a-blink type so prevalent in today's movies, 8MM fills the bill. - Craig Marine
