Prisoners of the Ghostland
Friday, October 1, 2021
In the treacherous frontier city of Samurai Town, a ruthless bank robber (Nicolas Cage, in what he says is "the wildest movie I've ever made") gets sprung from jail by a wealthy warlord whose adopted granddaughter has gone missing. He offers the prisoner his freedom in exchange for retrieving the runaway. Strapped into a leather suit that will self-destruct in five days, the bandit sets off on a journey to find the young woman -- and his own path to redemption.
From subversive Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono, this ridiculous piece of awesome - his first English-language release - is a cocktail of FURY ROAD, CONAN THE BARBARIAN, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, and the entire filmography of Takashi Miike; it is a wild, wild ride. NR (Mature) / 100 min.
