Description: Directed by Alan J. Pakula (All the President's Men, Sophie's Choice), this is an excellent, paranoid thriller and a benchmark for films of this type from the 1970s. Warren Beatty (Bonnie and Clyde) plays Joseph Frady, an arrogant investigative reporter who witnesses the assassination of a United States senator and then discovers that other reporters who were on the scene are dying under mysterious circumstances. With the help of his editor (Hume Cronyn), Frady goes underground to infiltrate the Parallax Corporation, which uses mind control to train assassins.

"Paranoiafilmien klassikkoja. Hieman hitaasti käynnistyvä, mutta lopulta mukavan kyyninen ajankuva. Puolivälin Kellopeli-henkinen kuvamontaasi yllätti pituudellaan, melkein teki mieli tarkastaa, että jouduinko repeatille."

"Superb political conspiracy thriller with Warren Beatty as a newspaper reporter who finds that anyone involved in the day a senator was assassinated, died. As he digs deeper into a web of conspiracy, he discovers a company who supply a special kind of employment could be involved. Alan J. Pakula's landmark thriller is gripping throughout and concludes with a very satisfying ending. Beatty, in more serious mode, is superb. One of the best films of the 70's."

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"One of the very best of the paranoid 1970s conspiracy thriller sub-genre, Alan J. Pakula’s “The Parallax View” is impeccably crafted, gripping, resonant, and features a great performance from one of Hollywood’s favorite stars: Warren Beatty. But unlike the two films in the unofficial trilogy that surround it, “Klute” and “All The President’s Men,” it was snubbed at awards time. Was it too much of a genre picture? Or did it hit a little close to home for the establishment?"
