The Film That Lit My Fuse is a Deadline video series that aims to provide an antidote to headlines about industry uncertainty by swinging the conversation back to the creative ambitions, formative influences and inspirations of some of today’s great screen artists.

Every installment asks the same five questions. Today’s subject is Nicolas Cage, who opens today in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, a film that casts Cage as a fictionized version of himself.
