Anatomy of a Murder

Otto Preminger USA, 1959

Warren Spratley's rating of the film Anatomie eines Mordes

How do I even begin to convey the richness of this film? Preminger's aesthetic is profoundly ethical in that it conveys by way of cinematic movement of many kinds the disorder of perspective. Camera movements are rigorous & contain an uncanny ability to remember. Space dissected, reassembled, then demolished. Words & matter--talismans, timepieces--are imbued with an overwhelming significance. What indeed is a soul?
