Denis Villeneuve’s “Prisoners” seems to have been lost in the awards season conversation and that’s a shame. Not only is Richard Deakins’ cinematography some of the best in his career but Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman’s emotional work here deserves more credit than it’s been getting. Newly released on a gorgeous Blu-ray (with, sadly, scant special features), “Prisoners” is the kind of adult drama that seems certain to pick up more fans on the home market. It’s really worth your time.
CHICAGO – Film Journal has announced that Guy Ritchie will be directing his first superhero film “Lobo.” The movie, based off the DC Comics anti-hero, is about a blue-skinned cigar-chomping alien named Lobo who’s an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter.
