Prisoners of the Ghostland
In the treacherous frontier city of Samurai Town, a ruthless bank robber (Nicolas Cage) named Hero is sprung from jail by The Governor and offered his freedom if he will rescue his runaway adopted granddaughter. Strapped into a leather suit that will self-destruct within five days – and maim him if he has any impure thoughts – the bandit sets off on a journey to find the young woman, and his own path to redemption.
Directed by cult legend Sion Sono (Love Exposure, Why Don’t You Play In Hell?) and starring Nicolas Cage in a typically extreme performance, Prisoners of the Ghostland finds them perfectly matched for one another in this post-Mad Max, post-Western gonzo action movie filled with impossible imagery.
