Prisoners ★★★½

not hilarious. Zodiac via Nancy Grace, overwrought morality play squeezes a miniseries into a film. absorbing & ridiculous in equal measure (and in that order). the problem with a film that is in part about resolution (and the impossibility thereof) is that when it tries to tie up all of its loose ends, well... it feels as though it wasn't paying attention. gotta love how villeneuve has a compulsion to insert a radiohead song, however faintly and out of place, into his stuff.
