DYING OF THE LIGHT | AndersonVision
“Dying of the Light" is a film about an older CIA agent that is being forced to retire. The man is plagued by nightmares over a man that tortured him 20 years ago, but he can't enact his revenge due to the onset of dementia. In between frequent stammering and involuntary shaking, Cage works with Anton Yelchin to find a way to make the man pay. But, revenge never comes easy for men that were meant to do the devil's work. The film is famous for the production issues that Schrader faced during production. I wish I could watch one modern Schrader movie where he just had a great time making a film.
