Frankenheimer's gripping political tale of conspiracy benefits from taut direction, good acting by an all-star cast, and excellent technical values, especially cinematography.

It's a good, engaging movie - great-looking, too, with top-notch photography and production design - but it tends to fall apart when you start kicking the tires and peek under the hood.

Frankenheimer's Washington, D.C., less baroque than in The Manchurian Candidate but just as hazardous

July 22, 2008
Shot in stark black and white, it shows the military not as the usual buffoons, but as ruthless right-wingers with a political agenda.

John Frankenheimer directed, too much in love with technique, though he ably taps the neuroticism of Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, and Fredric March.

Based upon a potboiling bestseller novel, Frankenheimer brings an artistic sense to the film, but he can only take it so far.

As dismal as is the complication that they and this picture present, the acknowledgment of its possibility and the discovery of how it might be resolved, with wisdom and fundamental courage, make this a brave and forceful film.

Lancaster is unparalleled in a rare bad guy role, helped amiably by a solid supporting staff. One of Frankenheimer's best works.
