The Parallax View
The Starz Denver Film Festival returns!
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
