How long have you written off Nicolas Cage? 25 years ago, the current hero of sooo weird films won an Oscar for Best Actor for Leaving Las Vegas. Time flies so quickly that Niko has already managed to divorce four times, get into divorce debts, sell property and go to the back door of Hollywood. But as for me – he gets high. Noticing his photographs in various foreign tabloids, I see not an offended and upset from the failed failures of a hmuryan, but a cheerful uncle, a kind of loafer who does not get worn out over trifles and just lives. So for the fifth time he married, in February of this year – to a Japanese woman who is 30 years younger than him, having met her in one of the restaurants in the land of the rising sun / there is already one reference to the film /.
Why am I talking so much about Cage’s biography? Yes, because without understanding what position he is in, it is difficult to perceive the current films with his participation. “Prisoners of the Land of Ghosts” is another strange film in the actor’s career. But if you don’t be lazy, but look for references lying on the surface and prepare yourself well for it, for example, by reading the biography of the Japanese director Shion Sono, having watched the films he shot, then the puzzle should come together. Personally, I’ve been waiting for The Prisoners to come out since February, when it just showed up at Sundance. Agree, explicit films of category B are not played there.
I will not retell the plot, read the synopsis yourself. A mixture of genres of dystopia, western, fantasy and savory thrash in front of you. It will not come to everyone, if you do not notice in time references to the bombing of Hiroshima, and after that you do not observe the motives of the lives of people from the land of Ghosts. But do not overdo it – “Prisoners”, this is not some kind of movie there to think hard about it. There is a place for entertainment, slow-mo games, funny dialogues and an amazingly delusional plot. Would you take the risk? Be the real Cage from the first paragraph. Well, at least a little.
