THE PARALLAX VIEW
1974, Paramount, 102 min, USA, Dir: Alan J. Pakula

Impetuous reporter Warren Beatty’s hunt for a political assassin turns more and more terrifying as each successive layer of corruption and right-wing insanity is unpeeled. When he enlists in a program to recruit social misfits as political killers-for-hire, the narrative assumes cosmically paranoid dimensions. A daringly downbeat, uncompromising speculation on how far the advocates of repression will go, co-written by Lorenzo Semple Jr. With Paula Prentiss, William Daniels, Hume Cronyn. "Its visual organization is stunning. … Excellent performances; fascinating film." - Time Out (U.K.)
