A movie way, way before its time, The Night of The Hunter did not get any credit until Spike Lee stole one of it's lines. When this movie first came out director Charles Laughton was so pissed about it's reception that he never directed again. What a shame because if he was still alive he could see the respect that this movie enjoys today.
I asked my grandmother about this movie and she said it was a dirty movie. I guess back then a movie about sexual obsession could be defined like that. This movie is not dirty but it is a bit taboo. It centers around a 14 year old girl and her sexual endeavor with her step father. Great movie, but like many other early Kubrick movies falls by the way side.
Alejandro González Iñárritu has made three features. This one being his best. This movie was not nominated for an academy award, but all three actors in the movie were. Why is that? Who knows, this movie made me cry and left me hanging just wanting more. This movie deserved a better following and more awards.
This is the Japanese made movie that was released in the U.S. It tells of a f*ture world held captive by aliens. Based on a popular video game the movie is able to not turn it self into something like Doom or Super Mario Bros. The movie did hardly any money at the box office and people disregarded it as dumb. But my friends this is one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies created.
