The Night of the Hunter

November 24, 2005

In this noirish thriller, psychotic, bogus preacher, Robert Mitchum, pursues two orphaned children to extract the whereabouts of hidden loot. Lillian Gish stands in his way. Mitchum’s favourite film is ¥a juicy allegory of evil € and innocence told with an eerie visual poetry.’ Edward Guttman, San Francisco Chronicle.
