Nightjohn (Burnett, 1996)

Another superb effort from one of America’s unsung masters, Charles Burnett. Nightjohn has one of the better child performances of recent years from Allison Jones as Sarny, the young slave who learns to read under the tutelage of the gallant titular character.

– More to come upon second viewing.
