Orson Welles's The Trial is one disturbing, but hauntingly beautiful film. After years of having studio interference with many of his movies from the Magnificent Ambersons onwards, Welles finally had complete control and (admittedly) really went for broke with this film!

Josef K. wakes up in the morning and finds the police in his room. They tell him that he is on trial but nobody tells him what he is accused of.

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" Bleak and depressing story based upon Franz Kaftka's novel about how society judge and control people without any reason or knowledge of why they do it. Excellent direction by Orson Welles and acted by fantastic actors and actresses. "

"4.8, PC Keskittyminen tähän oli aika kortilla, ja muutenkin koko touhu on liian vaikeaselkoista. Jotkut keskustelut tuntuivat täysin turhilta ja söivät kiinnostusta aika roimasti. Surrealistiset elementit ja Wellesin ohjaus olivat kuitenkin hienoa katseltavaa."
