The Parallax View - 5

Warren Beatty stars in this 70's film about politics and conspiracy. A senator gets assassinated and journalist Joesph Frady wants to get at the bottom of why all the witness are now dying off. He has a hunch that it is all connected to The Parallax Corporation, so he signs up in order to infiltrate it and expose it. While a good film over all and somewhat reminiscent of The Conformist and Nashville, the film ends in a sort of political nihilism. The highlight is a very well constructed montage that is used by the corporation for brainwashing its victims.
