A great whodunit with a unique setting.

Whodunits are a dime a dozen in my view.What makes In the Heat of the Night so unique in the murder mystery genre is it's setting:The racially tense deep south.This is what I enjoy about the film.You have two major plot lines to keep you engrossed:The investigation into the murder itself,and the racial tensions between Sidney Poitier's Virgil Tibbs character and virtually every other character in the film.The film is loaded with great acting,particularly from Poitier,who,not surprisingly,considers this his best work and is his favorite amongst all the projects he has done.Not only is this recommended viewing,it is recommended for a spot on your home video shelf.

engaging movie

In the heat of the night

"A hundred and sixty-two dollars and thirty-nine cents a week? Well boy! Sam, you take him outside but treat him nice, because a man that makes a hundred and sixty-two dollars and thirty-nine cents a week, we do not want to ruffle him! " Even when his intelligence laid on the table, racial preoccupation would still stand the way of his investigation." In the heat of the night" was directed by Norman Jewison in 1967. Different from other crime drama, this story puts more focus on building characters rather than the murder itself. This story described a story of a black police detective uncovered a murder case in a small southern racist town. When detective Virgil Tibbs (Sidney Poitier) waiting for a train at the station, a police officer (Rod Steiger) arrested him and accused him of murdering a successful businessman. When he clarified his identity at the police station, the local chief unwillingly asks for his assistance. During the investigation, Virgil's life had been threatened due to racial prejudice. While the racial tensions are growing over time, the hostility of chief is fading... Although storyline evolve around the murder events, still the movie shows a lot of interactions between Virgil and other characters. It draws audiences focus on the question: Can Virgil's career excellence overcome the prejudices and successfully reveal the mystery? " In the heat of the night" won a Best Picture Oscar Award by successfully conveyed the pictures of a hot, slimy, and small southern town. In the film, everyone's head was full of beads of sweat; it makes audiences feel the heat of the hot summer. Also, the characters often held an iced coke in their hand, and it reminds viewers the thirsty feeling of a hot day. By using small details and high saturated color, the film creates realistic pictures of the environment. The chief was very well acted, his accent and the noisy sound of gums also enhanced the impression of his personality. Overall, this is an engaging, entertaining, and well-acted movie.

Questionable

Personally, This movie wasn't one of my favorites. It wasn't my kind of movie but for the 60's the acting was good and it had a good story line. This movie also touched up on racism in the 60's as well in parts of the movie you can see how Virgil is treat in Mississippi during this time. One of my favorite parts of the movie was when they went to the plantation owner and Virgil slapped him. Overall this movie was good for it's time but I wouldn't watch it again.
