The Night of the Hunter
Charles Laughton, 1955, USA
A true American Gothic. The only film directed by actor Charles Laughton.
“Graced by images of eerie beauty and a sneaky sense of humor, this ethereal, expressionistic American classic—also featuring the contributions of actress Lillian Gish and writer James Agee—is cinema’s most eccentric rendering of the battle between good and evil.” —The Criterion Collection
