Day of Wrath (1943)


A fascinating film, thankfully closer to the staggeringly moving Ordet than the staggeringly boring Passion of Joan of Arc, this is a fascinatingly despondent dour of a film, with witchcraft, intolerance, forbidden, confused love, and like all of his films, a hatred of Puritanical persecution...narrowly my top film of 1943, it may also narrowly make my top 250...

This is a great film! I need to rewatch, though.
