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.

"Katsoin kahdessa osassa, nukahdin kesken Bloch-kohtauksen, Welles keskeyttää aina egollaan elokuvansa ja miksi vitussa K. piti räjäyttää ilmaan pötköllä dynamiittia? Silti tai ehkä juuri siksi, vau. (dvd 5.4)"

"Oh. My. God. Welles addapts a novel Kafka never ended. Is there anything else to say? Oh, yes: Anthony Perkins. This opening tracking shot is nuts. "

"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."
