Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week's theme is about disappearances in movies. Here are my picks for the week.
All Good Things - I think this was inspired by the Robert Durst case, where his wife is missing and it chronicles her relationship with her husband before her disappearance. I don't remember much from this except for the last few minutes of the movie, as I think that was the prominent part of the whole thing.
The Girl on the Train - This had Emily Blunt play the lead character who injects herself in a missing persons case because she has observed the couple from her train ride to work. This wasn't a good adaptation but a lot of people loved Blunt's performance her.
Prisoners - This takes two approaches into handling a missing girl's case. The cop tries to do it the legal way - investigates, interviews, deduces facts based on evidence. The father of the missing child narrows his focus to a strange person who he's convinced took his daughter. There were a lot of gritty scenes, some of them that I couldn't forget even if I tried.
