Raising Arizona

Edwina’s insides were a rocky place where my seed could find no purchase.

Nic Cage makes either the best movies ever made or the worst. This one I never tire of coming back to.

On our time travelling trip through the annals of cinema comedy we’ve tended to skip films we saw very recently or have generally seen many many times but I can’t pass up on the Coen Brothers at their best, even though I’ve seen Raising Arizona half a dozen times.

A fever dream cartoon romance brought to life.
