  • Some will write off Prisoners as shameless exploitation. But like Clint Eastwood's "Mystic River," to which it's been compared, Prisoners is so artfully shaped and forcefully developed that objections fade. show more

  • There's a near-sacred history in Hollywood of non-U.S.- born directors providing fresh perspectives on America. MiloŇ° Forman. Alfred Hitchcock. Ang Lee. Ernst Lubitsch. Billy Wilder. For Prisoners, a stress-inducing trip into child abduction, the director is Quebecois filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, who gives us an American "hero" guaranteed to push many buttons, many times, and who might not have been allowed to be quite so awful, under a different director's lens. show more

  • A devastating psychological thriller, Prisoners pulls us deep into our worst fear: the Amber Alert. Then it holds us under. show more
