Prisoners is a near perfect movie, with great performances from all cast members involved, the standouts being Hugh Jackman and especially Jake Gyllenhaal, who gives not only the best performance of his career, but also the best performance of the year. A great, great, great movie, also directed perfectly with great cinematography from Roger Deakins.
