This is the first image of a new series I'm working on,
interpreting classic films. This one is from the
Night Of The Hunter, a 1955 film, and the only one directed by
the famous actor Charles Laughton. The movie is one of the
first American films to fully utilize a wide range of expressionistic
techniques found previously mostly in German expressionist films
such as The Cabinet of Dr Kaligari. It was a flop on its release,
But became a huge influence on the films of Scosese, Jarmusch,
the Coen Bothers, Tarentino, and many other "expressionistic"
film makers from the 70's, 80's and 90's.
