I watched The Night of the Hunter today, and the dreamy river sequence brought to mind a cool old Black Box Recorder video:

The shot at 1:42 is straight out of the film, unlike the slightly less overt references scattered throughout the video.

Black Box Recorder was the third project of English wunderkind Luke Haines, who claimed to invent Brit-pop with his band The Auteurs in the early 90s. After The Auteurs disbanded, Haines recorded a solo project under the name Baader Meinhof, and then started B.B.R. Is the chorus of "Child Psychology"--Life is unfair / Kill yourself or get over it--a commentary on the sad plight of those perfect children on the run from evil Robert Mitchum?

Ponder that while you watch this bonus awesome 1998 vid:
