The Night of the Hunter

Opens Friday, Jan 17, 2014 Synopsis: Adapted by James Agee from a novel by Davis Grubb, The Night of the Hunter represented legendary actor Charles Laughton's only film directing effort. Combining stark realism with Germanic expressionism, the movie is a brilliant good-and-evil parable, with "good" represented by a couple of farm kids and a pious old lady, and "evil" literally in the hands of a posturing psychopath. Imprisoned with thief Ben Harper (Peter Graves), phony preacher Harry Powell (Robert Mitchum) learns that Ben has hidden a huge sum of money somewhere near his home. Upon his release, the murderously misogynistic Powell insinuates himself into Ben's home, eventually marrying his widow Willa (Shelley Winters). Eventually all that stands between Powell and the money are Ben's son (Billy Chapin) and daughter (Sally Jane Bruce), who take refuge in a home for abandoned children presided over by the indomitable, scripture-quoting Rachel Cooper (Lillian Gish). The war of wills between Mitchum and Gish is the heart of the film's final third, a masterful blend of horror and lyricism. Laughton's tight, disciplined direction is superb -- and all the more impressive when one realizes that he intensely disliked all child actors. The music by Walter Schumann and the cinematography of Stanley Cortez are every bit as brilliant as the contributions by Laughton and Agee. Overlooked on its first release, The Night of the Hunter is now regarded as a classic. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Cast: Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish, Billy Chapin, Evelyn Varden, Peter Graves Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Finding Joe

Opens Friday, Sep 30, 2011 Synopsis: This unusual documentary pays homage to controversial yet influential mythologist Joseph Campbell (1904-87), and evaluates the impact of his teachings on contemporary culture. The film interweaves original performances of Campbell's stories by a group of child actors, and interviews about Campbell, conducted with pioneers in multiple fields - such as Deepak Chopra, Mick Fleetwood, Akiva Goldsman, Catherine Hardwicke and Robin Sharma. At the center of it all is the defining concept that Campbell referred to as "The Hero's Journey" - the fears, challenges, struggles and battles that one must endure, to evolve over the course of one's life and emerge a changed person. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi Cast: Deepak Chopra, Mick Fleetwood, Tony Hawk, Rashida Jones, Laird Hamilton Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
