Texan Jimmy Van Horn arrives in China brimming with optimism, only to realize that acquiring a share of the country’s rapidly growing riches is not as easy as he thought. Armed with an absurd product pitch, Jimmy soon finds himself out of funds, leaving him at the mercy of corrupt American expats.

MUBI's take

A Herzogian work of gonzo filmmaking, John Maringouin’s debut fiction feature dives into the absurd world of modern Chinese commerce. Mostly shot in public spaces with handheld cameras, Ghostbox Cowboy is a surreal dark comedy fueled by an untamed performance from indie director David Zellner.
