STRESS RATING: ☢️☢️☢️☢️☢️
Had to take a break during the final act because I was getting too overwhelmed. One of the most stressful movies I’ve ever seen, period. Just click the list and see where it ranks.

Personal Rating: 9
I didn’t really know how to rate this besides that I thought the movie was pretty great. Really, I just want to watch a few episodes of Pushing Daisies, cheer myself up a bit, and go to bed, however I should probably say a few things about Prisoners before I do that. So here goes. Fantastic acting, I love Jake Gyllenhaal, the way Villenueve creates tension in this film isn’t very inventive yet it still digs under your skin in ways you didn’t know were possible, screenplay wasn’t without quirks but it serves it purpose masterfully, what an ending, I need a hug now. Goodnight!
