This screening will be introduced by Harvey O’Brien from UCD.
When witnesses to the assassination of a presidential candidate begin to mysteriously disappear, journalist Joe Frady (Warren Beatty) goes undercover in an investigation that leads him to the Parallax Corporation, a shadowy entity involved in the recruitment and training of professional hit men.
Memorably shot by the great Gordon Willis, Alan J. Pakula’s (All The President’s Men) post-Watergate conspiracy thriller brilliantly caught the prevailing mood of cynicism and paranoia. The bravura sequence where Parallax operatives subject Frady to a montage of confrontational imagery to evaluate his responses is unforgettable.
Screening as part of the Trust No One season, May 13th to 30th at the Irish Film Institute. Click for more info.
