Nicolas Cage said it was the “wildest” movie he had ever made


Nicolas Cage is the main actor in many really exaggerated films. Considering the 57-year-old feature films in over 100 films, this might not come as a surprise. His performances range from critically acclaimed dramas to some pretty ridiculous theatrical flops. However, her latest photo is perhaps the most ridiculously entertaining yet.

In fact, Cage called Prisoners of Ghost Country the craziest movie he’s ever made. The studio even used his words as a quote on the movie poster, which is possibly the first time in movie history that this has happened.

Prisoners of Ghost Country is a film in the genre of Japanese kabuki. Kabuki is a style of classical theater popular in Japan. It incorporates very elaborate costumes and a dynamic acting style.

“For me it’s more of a visually artistic film than a wild one, and doing something wild was not the intention. I wanted to bring some beautiful art in some way, ”director Sion Sono told Bloody Disgusting. “When we were filming in Mexico my idea was to create the classic western style. But as it changed for Japan for the places, I decided to do something extreme and extremely colorful. It was my decision.

The neo-noir Western action is about a thief who escapes from prison. He is sent on a mission to find and recover the Governor’s adopted granddaughter and bring her back to Samurai Town. However, in order to do that, he has to go through a post-apocalyptic hell called Ghostland, where things end up taking a wild turn.

“My intention was that I wanted to have something impressive, in terms of the visual image of the film itself, more than the details of the story,” Sono said. “So, I almost feel like I tried to create an amusement park or something. The visuals were more important this time.

If you can believe it, Cage actually said that Prisoners of Ghost Country is the craziest movie he has ever made. It’s a bold statement from a man who was in Mandy and Deadfall, a movie that gets 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.

“I had read the script and met [director] Sion Sono, we haven’t even made the film yet ”, the Leaving Las Vegas star told Yahoo! entertainment. “I said it in a magazine: this is going to be the craziest scenario I’ve ever done. And it turned into “the craziest movie I’ve ever made.” And I stand by that.

Without going into too much detail, the film is extremely gruesome and outrageous. It encompasses about four different kinds of genres in one picture and features some pretty inappropriate scenes.

“Sono leans most strongly on the absurd component with Prisoners of Ghost Country, a film where inconsistency is currency, perhaps a virtue. It takes the director’s crazy vision – the artistic realization of the film a few inches from oblivion – to outdo its star, which is a huge task, ”wrote critic John Serba for Décideur. “It features nothing less than: melancholy prostitutes, wild zombies, filthy moppets, slashy samurai, trigger-friendly cowboys, the pitiful and downtrodden citizens of doomsday badlands, scavengers and a serious preacher,” with Cage Man mixed with beer. “
