The Night of the Hunter

The Night of the Hunter ★★★★½

Indeed some really good cinematography, especially the cool dissolves, shots of animals representing predators and prey, and really innovating camerawork.
Mitchum is super creepy, as is the cult worship he inspires, and the kids give good performances too! I like movies that can establish good A and B plots and use each to nicely move the other forward, like this
