The new film “Prisoners” looks intense

Starring an all-star cast consisting of Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, and Maria Bello, check it out:

I get tensed just watching that. It’s sure to be an intense movie, then. I’m intrigued at least. However, it did remind me of a film I’ve seen before and I finally tracked it down because I had forgotten the name of it; it’s a foreign psychological/horror film known as 7 Days. I assure you, it’s not for a film for everyone. As I’ve said before, I’m somewhat of an aficionado when it comes to the depraved and controversial films out there. This is certainly one of those films, as it’s about a father who kidnaps and tortures the rapist/murderer of his little daughter. It’s a heart-wrenching film to watch not just because of the torture therein, but because of the torture of the father’s mind and the descent as such.

In any event, I dig films that deal with psychological issues and this one seems to be right there with that.
