This film is SO good. An excellent thriller! Jake Gyllenhaal is fascinating as Detective Loki. Great writing, great plot. WATCH IT. I think you’ll be glad that you did.
I definitely intend to watch it soon, hopefully this week already. I’ve been warned the movie might fuck me up - but that’s a good thing when it comes to thrillers, right? :)
i wouldn’t say it’s scary??? but it makes you feel a bunch of things, like i went from sad to angry to scared within five seconds sometimes and the ending messed me up lol
An emotional ride, huh? Yeah, those stay with you, in a tormenting sort of way. I mean, I love such movies, I just don’t like how I feel afterwards. But at least you’re not bored, right? :)
that movie will fuck you up for weeks
Is it scary?…
So, I become interested in watching Prisoners and Google the thing for a summary.
Lo and behold, HOW IS THIS EVEN REAL:
No summary needed. I’m totally watching this movie now. But not yet, at this point I’m just laughing at the protagonist’s last name. A bold move to name an original character Loki, in a movie that has nothing to do with mythology’s/Marvel’s Loki. I’m amused.

Remembering’s dangerous. I find the past such a worrying, anxious place. “The Past Tense,” I suppose you’d call it. Memory’s so treacherous. One moment you’re lost in a carnival of delights, with poignant childhood aromas, the flashing neon of puberty, all that sentimental candy-floss… the next, it leads you somewhere you don’t want to go. Somewhere dark and cold, filled with the damp ambiguous shapes of things you’d hoped were forgotten. Memories can be vile, repulsive little brutes. Like children I suppose. But can we live without them? Memories are what our reason is based upon. If we can’t face them, we deny reason itself! Although, why not? We aren’t contractually tied down to rationality! There is no sanity clause! So when you find yourself locked onto an unpleasant train of thought, heading for the places in your past where the screaming is unbearable, remember there’s always madness. Madness is the emergency exit… you can just step outside, and close the door on all those dreadful things that happened. You can lock them away… forever.”
Nirnaeth Arnoediad ~ The Battle of Unnumbered Tears [F.A. 472]
’(…) Some have said that even then the Eldar might have won the day, had all their hosts proved faithful. For the Orcs wavered, and their onslaught was stayed, and already some were turning to flight. But even as the vanguard of Maedhros came upon the Orcs, Morgoth loosed his last strength, and Angband was emptied. There came wolves, and wolfriders, and there came Balrogs, and dragons, and Glaurung father of dragons. The strength and terror of the Great Worm were now great indeed, and Elves and Men withered before him.’
“Every guy that I know that fights is always the quietest guy in the room; I just try to think more than talk. You’ll always learn more by listening rather than being the loudest guy in the room. And whatever you do, you do because you enjoy it, so I try to make my character enjoy fighting.”
