“The Parralax View”


April 1, 2015


The public's never-ending fascination with detective stories stretches at least as far back as the 19th century, and continues today. This series of detective films and TV shows presents examples of the classic detective, but also branches out to include broader definitions of "detective," as well as exciting mysteries from countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia. Attend the series, and you may find your own definition of "detective" changing...and you may discover a new favorite film, or more. Enjoy a brief presentation by a School of Theatre, Film & Television faculty member just before the screening.







In the early '70s, the Watergate scandal led to a number of political thrillers that dealt with shady government conspiracies. In this film, Warren Beatty stars as a journalist who investigates the assassination of a politician and ends up embroiled in a dangerous scheme involving brainwashing and murder!

Tense, thrilling action sequences and incredible cinematography from Gordon Willis (The Godfather) highlight this stunning exploration of political paranoia. It's a film that director and critic Alex Cox calls "one of the high points" of 1970's American cinema, featuring "possibly the best performance" of Warren Beatty's career.
