*Mods I'm sorry if somebody already posted something close to this topic. But I thought I'd give it a shot from fresh perspective even if they already
So I just saw the movie Prisoners with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhal in it and they had some pretty crazy subliminal messages in it that I
thought wouldn't be in this kind of movie.
I guess I'll start out with the basic premise of the movie. So Hugh Jackman and his neighbors daughters get kidnapped, so Hugh Jackman's character
takes matters into his own hands and abducts the first suspect after he's released because of lack of evidence to try his "special" brand of
interrogation. Jake Gyllenhal is the detective in the movie trying to find the daughters.
Now the subliminal messages or symbols and images in this movie aren't like Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, they're more in your face good vs.
evil kind of messages.
-From the very beginning Jackman's character is praying while he takes his son out hunting with him before his son shoots a deer. On their ride
home he lectures his son about being self sufficient and to be prepared for anything in the future. Later on we learn that he's a prepper and his
basement is stocked full of supplies, food, and a workshop.
-After their neighbors and Jackman's daughters go missing Gyllenhal's character the detective finds and apprehends the suspect who they later find
out is named "Alex Jones".
-Throughout the movie Gyllenhal can clearly be seen wearing a ring symbolic of the Free Masons and during the movie he's the closest character
that's "good". He also has other symbolic tattoos exposed on his neck along with what seem to be Greek characters on his fingers.
-There is a constant theme of light vs. dark in the movie, with the "Free Mason" detective trying to find the daughters while the "Prepper" father
is playing "vigilante" with "Alex Jones", while the suggestion of a heavier and darker force is at play. The darkness they touch on are a "family" of
chaos cultists who's main aim is to spread misery and pain in the vast goal of achieving people to lose their faith in God and religion after they
never get their children back.
-Their is also a heavy theme of mazes and "compartmentalism" throughout the entire movie, where neither the "Average Joe" (Jackman) or the "good
guy" (Gyllenhal) or other characters know information that would help each other but for some reason choose never to share it with each other. All the
while "Alex Jones" is feeding Jackman little tidbits of information here and there, who you think is a bad guy, but is really just a victim who, is as
well stupid and confused.
Anyways besides being a good movie in general, as soon as I saw these blatant images on the movie I was forced to pay attention. It's almost as if
they made them "too" obvious. As soon as I heard "Alex Jones" I thought to myself some of this stuff must have been blatantly planted in the movie to
grab peoples attention who actually knew anything about conspiracy theories. Now I just wonder what Alex Jones has to say about this movie and if he's
mentioned the character of himself on his radio show!
