Film Club – The Night Of The Hunter
November 1 @ 7:30 pm€5
1955 film, 93 min, Cert:CLUB Language:English
Director: Charles Laughton Starring: Robert Michum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish
Party fairy tale, part Southern gothic horror story, this brilliant film is Charles Laughton’s debut as a director—and unfortunately the only film he directed. Scripted by Laughton and James Agee, the film tells the story of a psychopathic preacher Robert Mitchum (with L-O-V-E and H-A-T-E tattooed on his fingers) who pursues two children who hold the key to hidden loot.Cinematographer Stanley Cortez’s expressionistic camerawork exhibits some of the most evocative images in film history. – Seattle Film Festival
