The Parallax View 1974

Alan J Pakula’s conspiracy thriller cast Warren Beatty as reporter Joseph Frady, whose investigation of a senator’s assassination plunges him over-his head into corruption, brainwashing, and a plot adapted from a 1970 novel by Loren Singer. The mysterious Parallax Corporation is at the heart of the investigation, and the highlight of Pakula’s film is a ten minute brainwashing film in which a hypnotic series of potent images are juxtaposed onscreen, giving the view a first hand taste of what Beatty’s character is experiences. Torn from the headlines of the 1970’s The Parallax View’s suspicions about big business and politics still seem relevant today.
