Karyn Kusama on

The Parallax View

Released 1974
Distributor Paramount

A corporation devoted to political assassinations?! What seemed pretty far out to some critics in 1974 doesn’t look quite so unlikely nearly 40 years later. The second entry in what has been called Alan Pakula’s political paranoia trilogy (following Klute and preceding All the President’s Men) benefits from striking Gordon Willis camerawork and a sharp script co-written by an uncredited Robert Towne.
