The Parallax View theatrical release poster

The Parallax View (1974) (DVD) directed by Alan J. Pakula (To Kill a Mockingbird  (1962), Klute (1971), All the President’s Men (1976)), starring Warren Beatty (Bonnie and Clyde (1967), McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971), Bugsy (1991)), Hume Cronyn (Lifeboat (1944), Cocoon (1985), The Pelican Brief (1993)), and others, with music by Michael Small (Klute (1971), Marathon Man (1976), The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981)) .  Suspenseful, well-filmed and well-acted, The Parallax View, an assassination conspiracy thriller and the second installment of Pakula’s Political Paranoia trilogy (which includes Klute and All the President’s Men), though it received mixed reviews at the time of its release, is a fine example of what many of us now, with time, have accepted as “the way things really are”, and is well worth viewing.

Klute

Klute film poster

Klute (1971) (DVD) Directed by Alan J. Pakula (The Parallax View (1974), All the President’s Men (1976), Sophie’s Choice (1982)), starring Jane Fonda (Barefoot in the Park, (1967),  Barbarella (1968), They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? (1969), Coming Home (1978)) and Donald Sutherland (Don’t Look Now (1973), A Dry White Season (1989), A Time to Kill (1997)), with Roy Scheider (The French Connection (1971), Jaws (1975), and the soon-to-be-released thriller, Iron Cross))Jane Fonda quite deservedly won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance as the understandably emtionally conflicted upscale call-girl, Bree Daniel, in this excellent thriller, wonderfully, carefully directed by Alan J. Pakula.  Donald Sutherland is also very good as the enigmatic, out-of-down private detective, and Roy Scheider is perfect as the suave and slimy pimp. Michael Small’s music is quite effective, as well. (PR)
