1. LOVE + HATE

3. LILLIAN GISH + ROBERT MITCHUM
Hey, everyone. Sheridan here. This is my first post for the Digest, and you may see me drop in again from time to time. If you have not seen The Night of the Hunter, then you should rectify that gross cinematic atrocity this very instant! Buy it. Rent it. Netflix it. Stream it. I don’t care. Just see it now. It is such a wonderful and wonderfully disturbing film, of the likes you will never find a successor. I absolutely agree with Criterion’s three reasons: they are all you need to know prior to your first viewing.
