Legendary filmmaker Denis Villeneuve has been in the business for quite some time but only in recent years has his career taken a new level following the release of Bladerunner 2049 and Dune.

However, one of his best movies ever produced is Prisoners starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, which dropped on Netflix yesterday for the first time.

The Oscar-nominated movie is about carpenter Keller Dover tracking down the culprit of the man suspected to have kidnapped his 6-year-old daughter.

Certified fresh on RottenTomatoes, critics concluded:

“Prisoners has an emotional complexity and a sense of dread that makes for absorbing (and disturbing) viewing.”

The movie is also currently streaming in 14 other countries, including Netflix in the UK, Canada, and Australia.
