Check out this insightful "Anatomy of a Scene" video feature for the NY Times, where Canadian director Denis Villeneuve talks a pivotal scene from the upcoming crime thriller "Prisoners," out this Friday.


A taut, disturbing, well-acted drama that debuted to raves at Telluride before hitting TIFF -- where it was the runner-up for the audience award -- "Prisoners" is elegantly lensed by 10-time Oscar nominee Roger Deakins. Here, Villeneuve discusses the film's dreary, rain-soaked palette. "The most important thing in cinema is to suggest and not to show," he says.

Though it has its implausibilities and problems, "Prisoners" is a nail-biter in the truest sense and -- thanks to excellent work by Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman -- gripping throughout its two-and-a-half-hour running time.
