Revenge is the raging fire that consumes the arsonist.
Max Lucado stated once.
This statement is often proven to be true when we watch the movie prisoners. since the beginning there are instances from the film which represent the shallowness of human lives.
Humans are social animals and hence, most vulnerable to emotional imbalances. We see that the story starts and ends at a bewildered yet sombre note. Be it the weakness of the father, the loss of the child, guilty innocents. Devour for revenge and pleasure of horror and most importantly the reluctant compulsions, everything is beautifully tied in a knot by the director Denis Villeneuve. Each and every frame conveyed what the film had to say, such was the magic of the legend Roger Deakins which was intensified by the mesmerizing music of Johann Johannson. It would be wrong not crediting the sincerity of the writer who holds the audience from the movie’s strong start to the ambiguous ending through his powerful screenplay. Lastly the whole theme of the film revolves around the missing children, torment of innocence and the different approaches adopted by the father and the police to solve the same case which makes us reach to a conclusion “Be prepared for the worst, but hope for the best.” The heart of the film lies in the convincing performances of the lead actors Hugh Jackman (Keller Dover) and Jake Gynellenhaal (Detective Loki).
The Bioscope Global film festival is the perfect place for film enthusiasts. We organize the festival annually to encourage the film industry. This festival is a great opportunity for aspiring filmmakers to showcase their work and get feedback from professionals.
