backtrack; Anatomy of a murder (1959)

Image

A »scientific« courtroom drama that dissects different aspects of lust, violence, and legalities. The result is a nicely constructed blend of emotional and clinical, forcing the viewer to ponder the complex and contradictory moral issues surfacing in the case at hand.

Radical for its day. In my book of sophistication.
