Why to Watch - Leaving Las Vegas

A literal love story between a hooker and a man trying to drink himself to death. If you want to see Nick Cage suck tits in front of your parents then by all means go for it, I personally would tell them to close their eyes. This is a movie truly unlike any you’ve seen before, and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing. Scratch that, yes it is.
