Prisoner of War

Paul Schrader Germany, 2008

Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Adam Resurrected

Excellent psychological drama from director Paul Schrader headlined by a superb performance by Jeff Goldblum, easily one of his best. A strange, dark, sometimes surreal, sometimes heartfelt film that expertly balances its offbeat characters and tone, generating an almost mesmerizing energy. It's really a shame it got so little attention when it was released, people need to seek this one out.
