The presence of Robert “Paycheck” De Niro (in a role that feels a little bit like Louis Cyphre in Angel Heart) suggests that The Bag Man is the kind of film that will eventually nibble John Cusack‘s soul to death if he’s not careful. How many films does he make annually? Two or three? More? He’s got a lifestyle to support, but as I just said in the previous item he can’t continue to play luckless schlubs in low-rent, standard-issue genre films. Not entirely. The whole thing about Being John Cusack is that he has to “be” John Cusack.
