Anatomy of a Murder is a type of movie you don't see often anymore
5 second plot: A small town lawyer takes up the defense in a big murder case. It seems impossible not to get convicted, but they plead 'not guilty' anyway. The murder was done in an act of rage, as a reaction to the rape of the defendant's wife.
5 second review: The movie is more than 60 years old, so I didn't always understand where everyone was getting so excited about. Different times, different ways. But I did find the smart ass questioning and slow preparation of the case the defense tries to make, very interesting.
