Media Consumption Log: Cape Fear (1962)

This is what noir is all about, in some ways -- at least, from a cinematographic angle, this is a movie set in darkness, and I like it.  What is disappointing is the clean division between good and evil.  There is no chance to sympathise with the villain nor to complicate identification with the hero.  And man, this is total PG compared even to an episode of Criminal Minds.
