Joel Coen – 1987
Raising Arizona is a fantastic off-beat comedy – and one of the Cohen Brothers finest films.
Nicolas Cage is great as the dim-witted ex-con, but the film’s best moments involve the Lone Rider Of The Apocalypse. There’s a lot to enjoy in this live-action cartoon, but the film’s ending is also a serious highpoint.
Raising Arizona comes highly recommended, although it might not be to everyone’s taste!
