Important story, excellent cast

I always appreciate films that juxtapose important issues with a fictional human element. The Runner successfully did that, mixing a documentary insight into the BP oil spill's effects while also remaining a character study of a corrupt politician. This film came at the right time – the spill happened 5 years ago, and people have forgotten about the trauma it caused. I hope this film reminds people of the spill's lasting effects. Nicolas Cage is a mesmerizing actor, who has done a ton of crap lately, but here he displayed that he can still act. Similar to Joe, Cage strayed away from his typical madman role, playing a vulnerable and human version of Frank Underwood (House of Cards). There are a few other good character actors in this, especially Peter Fonda. The movie runs on the short side – it's definitely worth a watch.

One of Cage's Best in Years

People love to bash Nic Cage films, and clearly a lot of people will bash this one simply because of that. I'm a Cage fan and I'll admit, he has put out a string of terrible films lately. But I feel comfortable saying that "The Runner" is his best performance in many years. The movie is a slow burn Southern political drama that takes place during the BP oil spill in 2010. It addresses the oil spill and politics in general in an intelligent way. It's far from a thriller, as they wrongly marketed it in the trailer, so you need to stay with it. It is a quiet film, sad at times too. It's certainly not for everyone. You also won't get any Crazy Cage highlights here for Youtube - he's restrained and nuanced. The rest of the cast is also really good, especially Sarah Paulson and Peter Fonda. If you're into politics, dramas, or have liked Nic Cage in the past, I highly recommend this film.

Thought provoking, well acted character study

I don't know what the problem is with movies these days other than it seems that only fast paced, herky jerky camera work and shock value entertainment draws the masses in..... but this movie was very, very good and sadly, terribly overlooked. Maybe it was overlooked because Nic Cage isn't on the flavor of the month list anymore but it's a shame that it was totally ignored by the critics and audience both.

Cage did a wonderful job of playing a conflicted, somewhat tortured train wreck waiting to happen but good hearted politician who truly cares about the people he represents during the BP oil spill in the gulf. He delivers a truly human and well measured performance and you couldn't see the "acting" in his performance one iota. To me, that's a very good, if not great performance.

On a side note, I loved the music in the movie. Especially the Tom Waits song "Picture in a Frame".

Well done, Nicolas!
