201 : A Film Odyssey

This all started after I read Empire magazine back in March 2006.

Inside was a definitive list of the 201 best films of all time, as voted for by the magazine and it's readers. Included in the list were all kinds of films I would never normally watch. So as a keen film watcher, I thought to myself it might be a good idea to try and watch all the films in order and record my thoughts, and at the end of it, see how close the list was to my 201 best films.

This project will be much better if you could comment on these films and my reviews, so please, please, please get involved, just click on the comments text at the bottom of each review.

189 ... The Night Of The Hunter

189 ... The Night Of The Hunter

Guess what... another film I'd never seen !

And another 'old' black and white movie, with some great cinematography.

Robert Mitchum's character Harry Powell is a fake preacher, a charlatan, who marries women and then kills them for their money. But takes on one con too many with the Harpers.

I did enjoy this movie, and at the time (1955) it must have been a pretty scary trip to the flix.

AFO (A Film Odyssey) rating 7
Links ... IMDB (8.2),   Wikipedia
