Very evocative, stylistically beautiful and an excellent movie in which Robert Mitchum plays the diabolical Harry Powell, which does it exceptionally well. Directed by Charles Laughton and the film was unfortunately many hits when it came out and contributed to Charles Laughton lost the courage to make more films. A great shame, because the film is an evocative masterpiece and needed to be seen by all.
Why is there a watermelon there?
Holy moly what the hell was that I just watched? Completely insane far out of all the dimensions of the strangest - but a most brilliant, entertaining and surprising thing I've seen for some time. A film that I never had read or heard of before, which should be absolutely impossible with the truckload of a cast! I mean, just look at it.
Really a bizarre film and story that's include Buckaroo Banzai (Peter…
It's about time, that's what!

Sam Raimi wasn't lucky to obtain the rights for The Shadow, so he made Darkman instead with twisted super anti-hero Liam Neeson. And what a fine piece it is and looks super glorious on blu-ray from Scream Factory too. A revisit today makes Darkman obvious reasons very 90s, but Raimi's direction makes it timeless. Its blackly comic approach and it's wild, surreal images are unique and filled with gripping drama, action and strong characters.
