"Night of the Hunter"
is so, so awesome. I usually don't pay much attention to cinematography, direction, and all that stuff as I'm more of a dialog guy, but good gawd was that movie beautifully shot. The angles and the black and white cinematography were gorgeously haunting. Robert Mitchum was unforgettable too. Transcendently scary and cool at the same time. I love the way he would say, "chillllllldren!!!"
and what happens at the end made me want to cheer for guns. I've never been so glad someone had a gun. Very few movies have blown me away as much as that one did.
