Anatomy of a Murder

  • Dir: Otto Preminger

  • USA, 1959, 160minmins, DCP

  • Cast: James Stewart, Lee Remick, Ben Gazzara

A small town murder trial that forces us to fathom what the truth is and who represents it or even hides it behind complex arguments. What, after all, does it mean to act in a moment of insanity? Based loosely on a real case of rape and revenge, this courtroom drama forces us to listen to – and to doubt – almost everyone involved, whether defendant, witnesses, lawyers and prosecutors. With a jazz score by Duke Ellington.

1959 Venice Film Festival, Best Actor
1960 Academy Awards, 7 nominations including Best Picture
