My opinion : Thirdly we’ll be exploring a feeling of repression in film. One of the most effective and strongest emotions an audience can feel for in a movie is injustice, the idea that theres nothing that serves as a way of relieving ourselves psychologically and when we are left with nothing but pain and sorrow, this doesn’t necessarily happen every-time the bad guy wins in a movie (ie : The Usual Suspects) but more that, we feel horrible for someone and we expect that in the end theres a sense of hope and the hero finally is happy. Well with the emotion i’m talking about, this does not happen. I’m talking about films such as The Green Mile (arguably the most emotional film to date) or the full third act of Million Dollar Baby which would’ve been a prime example but i’m actually going to talk about the sub plot of the 2013 Denis Villeneuve film Prisoners that speaks volumes in what its trying to say and is about two families who lose their two daughters and with the help of a great investigator, must find them for as quickly as possible.
