Storyline

Notorious Hollywood bad boy Darek Playto is captured by a mysterious Jailer while scouting a decrepit, abandoned prison for an upcoming film. Playto is a volatile visionary whose controversial reputation has earned him more than his fair share of enemies in the entertainment industry. In preparation for his upcoming feature film - a violent prison drama - Playto sets out to find the perfect surroundings in which to tell his brutal tale. Upon discovering a dilapidated prison that was once a notorious house of pain, it appears that Playto has found just such a location. But Playto isn't alone in this crumbling penitentiary, and upon being captured by the Jailer the director's only hope for escape is to answer a series of increasingly intimate questions concerning his art and his life.

Tricks of the Mind
30 April 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After presenting his new project to his producers, the controversial, arrogant and bad tempered director Derek Plato (Julian McMahon) decides to visit the location in an abandoned prison in Tennessee. While visiting the decay place, Derek is captured by a mysterious Jailer (Elias Koteas) that forces him to tell the beginning of his career and his relationship with his mother to his camera, disclosing hidden secrets in the mind of Derek.

"Prisoner" is a creepy mystery movie with a promising story, good actors and actresses but terrible and noisy edition. The intention is great of a man that somehow discovers secrets he had buried and forgotten in his mind, but the screenplay is confused and pointless and the noise in every flashback is annoying. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "A Sete Chaves" ("At Seven Keys")
