France, Germany, Italy | 1962 | Orson Welles
“The Trial is the best film I have ever made,” said Orson Welles about his virtuosic, visually-stunning adaptation of Kafka’s nightmarish classic. Tony Perkins plays the young bank clerk Joseph K., who is arrested one day on unspecified charges and becomes entrapped in a labyrinthine justice system while trying to learn what he did wrong. Welles and Jeanne Moreau co-star in this chilling, expressionistic classic.
