The Parallax View
The Starz Denver Film Festival returns!
Sat November 10
2007, 9:00

Much to the surprise of Hollywood, Alan J. Pakula's The Parallax View was a boxoffice success in 1974. Uncharacteristically intelligent, it built upon the foundation of The Manchurian Candidate to create a new subgenre: the Post-Watergate conspiracy thriller. What made Parallax different was its approach. Its outlandish tale of a nefarious corporation manipulating American politics was treated not as a fantasy, not as merely possible, but as something probable…The Parallax Corporation controls the minds of men through the persuasion of cinema propaganda. Are we really affected by the barrage of images in our daily lives? Perhaps the lesson of the 'Audition Film' of Parallax should be that EVERY SHOW and every image we see has the potential to affect us, and that none of us is immune. (Glenn Erickson)
