Aroview: Staggering 'downward-spiral' drama set on a Las Vegas strip of neon lights, broken dreams and drunken oblivion. Nicolas Cage drinks himself to death, and won a deserved Oscar for his feverish, raw-nerves immersion in the role. The director also contributes some fine jazz.

5 stars (Exceptional) A gut-wrenching tale of unconditional love. Tender & torturous all at the same time. Ben & Sera are outcasts on the fringes of society who embark on an unconventional romance. It's dark, no happily ever after, but its rawness & poignancy is breathtaking.~GenXGirl
5 stars (Exceptional) Cage is simply brilliant in this staggering tale of a man's self-loathing drink-obsessed quest for a life worth living. Vegas is no holiday destination, and 'Leaving Las Vegas' is not for the faint of heart.~Tom H
4 stars (Very Good) Its anti-alcoholic message is a plus and there is nothing soppy about the romance. The bar scenes are particularly well handled and the continuous soundtrack is also a positive.~tubbs
