ANATOMY OF A MURDER (1959) 4 stars

A genius story with Stewart playing a flawed and shrewd lawyer. It's one of the all-time great courtroom dramas. Modern day crime films could learn a thing or two from this masterpiece. Preminger was never afraid to push buttons and be controversial. Plus, Duke Ellington wrote the score! Highlights include Stewart jamming with the piano legend.

Director: Otto Preminger
