Editors Note
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).

ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review 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.

Alex Simon, Venice Magazine 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.
Roger Ebert, Siskel & Ebert Thumbs up from me for this absorbing adult thriller. My thumb is jolted up. Joel Schumacher... finds a dark, frightening tone for the material.
