"I keep dreaming I'm lost in a maze."
Prisoners is like a game of tug-of-war. It's chilling grip loosens only to present broken characters, who tug back with their emotional and fallacious actions. Creating this mystery and tension between the audience and the dark, somber story about child abduction. Director Villeneuve and masterful cinematographer Roger Deakins have created a beautiful movie that visually tells a scary, stunningly hypnotic story about sorrow, empathy, and madness. Jackman and Gyllenhaal share important moments together as talented actors both delivering powerful performances. I don't think people should have favorite kidnapping movies but if I did this would be mine. It's a thrilling and emotionally triumphant film that demands to be watched.
