Review of Prisoners
by Justin Purwitsky
Posted on June 20th, 2020
Positive 9
Overall Rating
this movie is tee-ense. i saw it in theatres when it came out and i loved it. it made me jump to see enemy (same director; released a few months after) after and it made me think and discuss a lot for days after. not many movies do that these days; this one did. everything about this movie stands out. the acting, like seriously maybe hugh jackman's best performance ever! a performance by jake gyllenhaal that at the time turned him from pretty boy into serious oscar worthy actor. he is flawless here and he's only got better since. and paul dano, is that guy ever not just amazing in his own weird way? then there is the dirty and grimy and very real looking sets, the dark and gloomy cinematography, the long takes, the interesting camera angles, the ominous and desolate locations along with a musical score that is slow, methodic, eerie and yet pulse pounding that all come together to make this an experience you will never forget. telling a dark and twisted tale of two missing children and the effects it has on the families and people involved and the lengths in which they will go in the madness is strikely harsh, deeply affecting and comes off as very original. this wasn't denis villeneuve's first film, but it was his first 'american' production; his first 'hollywood' film and it is a welcome introduction to someone who is turning out to be one of the best directors out there. if he continues to make more movies like this (and he seems to be doing just that) he might just end up being this generation's greatest filmmaker (tell me who's better right now?) prisoners is one of the best films of it's year. it's really dark and depressing but if you can handle that kind of stuff you are in for one hell of a brooding ride. if you like thrillers at all then promise me when i tell you that you! can! not! miss! this! one! production design: 10 out of 10 cinematography: 9 out of 10 re-playability: 8 out of 10 originality: 9 out of 10 costumes: 10 out of 10 directing: 9 out of 10 editing: 9 out of 10 acting: 10 out of 10 music: 10 out of 10 script: 9 out of 10 93/100
