... arguably the definitive conspiracy thriller of the seventies.

The Parallax View is one of the great paranoid thrillers of the 1970s. Which, when you consider how paranoid America was post-Watergate, is high praise indeed.

It's an astringently cynical take on official history, with Warren Beatty as a muckraker investigating the strange aftershocks of a senator's killing.

A fotografia de Gordon Willis é sufocante, mas o filme empalidece frente a produções similares, como Sob o Domínio do Mal e Todos os Homens do Presidente.
