"My whole body's just a-quiverin' with cleanness."

So Greta has been trying to get me to watch one of her favorite movies "Night of the Hunter" for years now. Well, tonight I finally watched it. The movie is incredible. The dialogue is on fire. And the subject matter is so twisted, I don't know how they ever got away with making it back in the 50's. Robert Mitchum plays the baddest of the bad in this film. A holy-man gone sour, a psychopath hiding behind the Bible. With "Love" and "Hate" tattooed across his knuckles the guy inhabits the role like he's been posessed. This is a real DeNiro-in-"Taxi Driver" type of performance. An amazing performance in an awesome movie. If you haven't seen this, you must drop everything and rent it immediately. This I command.
