Orson Welles considered this to be his very best film. We’re inclined to agree.
A giddy and surreal retelling of Franz Kafka’s celebrated novel, The Trial stars Anthony Perkins (Psycho) as the beleaguered Joseph K in perpetual, quixotic joust with an elusive and arcanely bureaucratic ‘Justice’ system (embodied, at times, by a corpulent Welles himself).
Rarely seen on the big screen since its original release, The Trial is not to be missed.
