The Trial

When: Sat., May 2, 9:30 p.m. 2015

A darkly comic adaptation of the Kafka novel, The Trial stars Anthony Perkins as Josef K, a man lost in the seemingly endless bureaucracy of facing a trial for a crime that is never named. Instead of a courtroom drama, the film depicts a never-ending descent into the madness of bureaucracy, as questions remain unanswered and no one quite understands how all the pieces fit. After Citizen Kane, The Trial is the film that best demonstrates Welles’s penchant for using canted angles and visually expressive sets to heighten the interior drama of his characters.
