8MM (1999)

By Ahmed Al Kiremli

Movie Story

A private detective is hired by an old lady from a rich family to investigate the murder of a young girl that she found on a video tape in her husband’s safe after his death. The detective, working hard to solve the puzzle of the tape, gets caught up in the investigation.

My Opinion

Sometimes something in life pushes you beyond your imagination. The truth or your conscience can catch up with you if you get too curious, and that’s exactly what happens to private detective Tom Welles (Nicolas Cage) in this movie. The story was well written, as was the dialog. Nicolas Cage did a good job in terms of performance. Watching the movie, you might feel uncomfortable because the story is a tragedy about murder, and this movie makes you realize how far some people can go. Definitely worth watching.
