In The Heat Of The Night, 1967

First viewing

This is the best film I’ve seen so far this year. Complex and satisfying. I won’t say much more because others have so much better than I ever could, but I absolutely loved this movie. It's not often that I like a Best Picture, in fact, I've despised many. This is truly a gem for many reasons.

The fact that prejudice and racism are stronger now than in years makes me sick. I almost didn’t want to watch this but it was just starting when I turned on TCM and it pulled me in. Just a really well done film all around. I hope some day we look back and say, look at what people used to think and do.
