Jacques Audiards masterful A PROPHET stretches the concept of entertainment by taking us into the brutish world of a French prison...Wall Street Journal "[W]ith its lush Alexandre Desplat score, deeply shadowed compositions, and fluid, understated camera movement, A PROPHET is distinctly an Audiard construction."Film Comment 4 stars out of 5 -- "Rahim shifts from wary tough-nut to keen student to aloof enigma in the furrow of a brow. It's a masterful performance..."Empire "[T]he masterful A PROPHET, is an answered prayer for those who believe that revitalizing classic forms with contemporary attitudes makes for the most compelling kind of cinema."Los Angeles Times "Rahim is superb in a lead role that calls for him to be both sympathetic and ruthless. With his soulful dark eyes, he powerfully conveys a primal need for self-preservation."USA Today 3 stars out of 5 -- "It says much for the ability of director Jacques Audiard that he manages to create an emotional intensity that lifts the commonplace on to a higher plain."Box Office "[It's] like a Gallic GOODFELLAS: thoroughly absorbing, exciting, even poetic. It's a full evening's entertainment." -- Grade: A-A.V. Club "[An] incendiary crime epic....Like THE GODFATHER, which it regularly recalls, A PROPHET serves up crime as metaphor for life and power, set in a world of chaos that is dependent on codes and rules."Wall Street Journal "Like his character, Mr. Rahim's performance sneaks up from behind....A thrilling film."New York Times "Contrasting a cold-eyed naturalism with calm, almost soothing hallucinations of his victim and impressionistic internalizations, Audiard creates a seductive psychology..."Movieline "[The director] proceeds with calm, unshowy attentiveness, creating a stunning portrait of an innately smart survivor..." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 4 -- "The best performance in the film is by Arestrup as Cesar....The newcomer Rahim is an enigma."Chicago Sun-Times 4 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his knockout punch of a thriller surpasses its trappings to speak in a universal language about the ways power corrupts the human condition."Rolling Stone 3.5 stars of 4 -- "[Audiard draws] viewers into the densely layered, ruthless ecology of a French prison..."Washington Post30.98127
