Prisoners of the Ghostland

Prisoners of the Ghostland ★★½

The natural destination for boring Nic Cage meme-heads and equally boring gonzo cinema adherents would have to be this watered-down piece of only-relative weirdness. Reliably for Sono it brings up nuclear paranoia and Fukushima, simultaneously bolstered by some impressive production design and hamstrung by a completely erratic pace and utter disinterest in narrative. Reliably for Cage he's totally turned-on by being let loose, but there's little for him to hold onto in a character that's mostly just a parody of action guys with some tacked-on pathos.
