After those Saul Bass anthology credits, the false peace of justice being made in the province, ambiguity, doubts, open ending,but more love of truth than hipocresy. Dueke Ellington as bonus track, cant ask for more

I'm not one for older movie but I caught this one late last night, and noticed a resemblance to A Time To Kill(One of my favorite movies). That and I like Jimmy Stewart I felt I had to watch it. This is one of Jimmy Stewart's best performances. He plays Paul Beigler, a small-town lawyer who defends a man on a charge that he murdered a man whom his wife accused of having raped her. Stewart leaves h... read more

A great classic

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out and, eventually, I wasn’t disappointed, that’s for sure. Indeed, what an entertaining movie! Basically, it is actually a really simple story but it was still completely spellbinding and I thought it was pretty awesome to behold. In my opinion, this movie is pretty much the proof that you can make a movie wi... read more

Laura Manion returns home to tell her husband she's been raped. Lt. Manion kills the rapist and then claims crime of passion as a defense. At least that's his story. Paul Biegler agrees to defend him and must unravel a case in which the motivations of the murderer, his wife, and the victim are all in question.

" Notes: Basically, it is actually a really simple story but it was still completely spellbinding and I thought it was pretty awesome to behold. In my opinion, this movie is pretty much the proof that you can make a movie without any explosions, shootings, CGI or whatsover but still remain compulsively watchable. Not so long ago, I saw ‘Witness for the Prosection’, another classic courtroom drama made in the 50’s and while I really enjoyed this movie as well, there was a very far-fetched t"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"The Courtroom Drama genre has given us some of the finest, tensest and most involving films ever made over the years but it is also a genre that often stumbles into "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH" melodrama. While I have a penchant for these theatrics as well, it is refreshing to see a Courtroom Drama that adheres more closely to the realities of the legal system. Enter Otto Preminger's 1959 classic 'Anatomy of a Murder', a lengthy examination of the criminal justice system which goes so deeply int"
