One Sentence: The best crime thriller since Silence Of The Lambs.
After Credits: None
I started writing reviews because I love movies. I watch so many and have a point of view that I think some other people might be interested in. If I was going to look at what really made me start writing reviews though, it was that I just love movies. Lately I have been feeling like I am losing my connection to movies, that everything has been dumbed down, or I am just not feeling what I used to about movies. Then I saw Prisoners and I remember why I love movies.
Let’s use the buzz words first. Powerful, real, emotional, gripping, edge of your seat…etc. Put in all those words that you would see on the previews and posters, this movie is those things. It is rare that I think a movie is so far and ahead of every movie that has come out the same year. Prisoners is that movie.
I left the theater, I forgot my hat, that I had taken off because I kept running my fingers though my hair. I got home and needed to lie down on the bed and just relax for a minute, I was so tired, and worn out from the heavy breathing and intensity of watching every second of this amazing movie by first time studio release director, Denis Villeneuve.
This is one of those movies that will be around forever. It will be the type of movie everyone talks about 20 years later, and gets their friends who have never seen it to watch it. They will make the ones that wanted to skip it because they don’t like those types of movies watch it anyway, because it is just that good. It is an amazing, wonderful, masterpiece. Go see it, as soon as your possibly can.
