The Trial

"Excellent"

The Trial Review


Welles' adaptation of Kafka's famous work is one of his most innovative and bizarre, a trip through the surreal that would have done Kafka proud. Anthony Perkins is a solid choice as Josef K., the protagonist who's accused of and tried for a crime -- without ever being told what it is. His journey through the dystopic justice system (though rambling) has as many modern day analogues as ever, and The Trial's stunning visuals ensure you won't be able to look away.

Aka Le Procès.
