The performances by Cage and Shue (two of my favorite actors) are superb. Completely different from what they've done before, Cage adds stunning realism to his part, as does Shue, who's character is far from the stereotypical hooker with a heart of gold. The direction by Mike Figgis is quite good too. The script needed some drastic work though. Most of the supporting characters end up being sleazy cliches of Las Vegas inhabitants and it's too depressing at times to tolerate. But, if you're a big fan of Cage and Shue, then this is the perfect film for you.
