I have just seen the movie "Heaven's Prisoners", and I have to say it was a wonderful film. In fact, I think that the director, Michael Crichton, made this film to stand up for American values. The story deals with the situation that children in a school are facing when a teacher is put in jail. After watching this movie, I felt so sorry for the children who were facing so much torment. Also, I felt very sorry for the women who suffered so much as the result of the sexual harassment. I'm also not going to say anything bad about the parents who were mistreated by their children. They are just human beings. However, this is a movie which deals with a very important issue, and I think that it should be given some credit. Some critics say that this film is unrealistic, and I think that they are just mistaking the situation that a child faced with the teacher. I thought that this movie showed the true face of children who are being bullied. I think that the director, Michael Crichton, deserves some credit. The children's behavior was not just a problem of the teachers, but they have been brainwashed from a young age by their parents. The principal of the school was in on the sex-harassment and made a mistake of letting the boys in the school know about the crimes committed by the teachers. This movie shows what true cruelty is, and how the victim doesn't deserve to feel that this is what he has to face. Now, I would like to mention one other thing. I think that this movie deserves to be watched by every school child, especially the ones who are facing bullying. I was very shocked that some kids actually changed their own values to help their victim. The victims were really angry that the teachers and the principal did not protect them. I think that this film should be watched by everyone. There is nothing wrong with bullying. Bullying is a very serious issue which needs to be punished, but this is not a movie which shows you how it is done. This movie should be seen by everyone. It is about the true face of child abuse. I think that this movie should be seen by every child and they should learn not to get bullied.

I have been a David Fincher fan ever since I first saw "Closer", and after viewing this film, I feel like it's safe to say that this is probably the best film of the year. Fincher has managed to portray characters that are beyond psychotic and have a way of acting like they're done in the therapy room all the time. (In one scene we see Brad Pitt talking to the psychiatrist and then discussing his mother's suicide with his brother. It's all done with such controlled quietness that we feel like it's happening to us, in this case, because we see that the character's emotion and behavior have been thoroughly studied in psychology class.) Not once does the film seem like the result of a modern film-making technique that relies on some sort of special effects to make it more realistic. It looks like a documentary and that's definitely the direction that Fincher wanted to go with "Requiem for a Dream" and "Signs". The performances are amazing and there's a terrific story-line that moves you from one thing to another and never seems forced or labored. As much as I love the film, there are a few scenes that may disappoint or disappoint your audience: 1) For one scene, before the kidnapping, there's a little scene in which Brad Pitt and Michelle Pfeiffer hold hands in a supermarket and it seems to go on for a very long time. The scene ends with them holding hands again. In the moment you can see that they're holding hands again and everything's okay. The next scene, however, they're holding hands again and it's very apparent that they're both in love with each other. 2) At times, the film moves slowly and with little intensity, but even when the camera lingers on something, it doesn't feel so unnatural. These are minor flaws, however, and this film is definitely worth watching. You will be surprised that you have never heard of this film before watching it.
