Bad Day at Black Rock ★★★★½

Hot, dry, reactionary anger. Gonna have to check the books to make sure this isn't the first time that Japanese Internment Camps are mentioned on screen. Either way, Spencer Tracy goes Oro mode to solve a dumpy western town's dark secret. It is laughable how in the face of someone with real conviction and/or half a brain, the gang's facade just crumbles like a Jenga tower. Cast some light on them and they're really, spiritually and mentally, a bunch of schoolchildren scared that the teacher will find out that they did something bad. If you watch the scene Tracy tells the receptionist why he came to Black Rock in the first place, you can watch in real time as the receptionist's soul turns to dust.

I wish the HD remaster wasn't kinda dumpy, otherwise I'd have to add this to my collection ASAP
