Three quarters of the way through Prisoners of the Ghostland, director Sion Sono's new post-apocalyptic samurai spaghetti western starring Nicolas Cage, my wife turned to me and said "I feel like this is extremely your shit." She's right. Prisoners of the Ghostland is extremely my shit. All the elements are in place for a film that feels like it was made specifically for me. That those elements don't always come together in a completely satisfying way doesn't totally matter to me, because this is more of a vibe movie anyway. I vibed with it pretty hard.
