  1. THE PARALLAX VIEW - ALAN j. ‘ALL THE PRESIDENTS MEN’ PAKULA (1974)
ASSASINATION IS AS AMERICAN AS APPLE PIE aka only downloaded this beacause of the title (it’s title of a ZIZEK book) but my god, what an absolute treat. A CLASSIC OF THE 70s POLITICAL THRILLER/CONSPIRACY PARANOIA GENRE, feat. the indomitable WARREN BEATTY (he’s not quite CLYDE BARROW, but nevertheless WHAT A GUY) and a mysterious corporation RECRUITING ASSASINS VIA A PERSONALITY TEST (AKA THE MEDICAL GAZE STRIKES AGAIN).
FEAT. ONE OF THE GREAT BRAINWASH-MONTAGE-SEQUENCES OF ALL TIME (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzGstwUOero); an enthralling breakdown of the family as factory for citizen production. the finale is v. reminiscent of THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, except possibly even more nihilistic (AND WE MUST BEAR IN MIND THAT CANDIDATE IS ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREAT CYNICAL CONCLUSIONS, quite literally suicidal).
