Orson Welles Week! concludes at Trailers from Hell with TFH creator Joe Dante introducing Welles’ 1962 mindbender “The Trial,” starring Anthony Perkins, Jeanne Moreau, Romy Schneider and the director himself.
Franz Kafka’s 1925 novel about an office clerk who is arrested for a crime that is never revealed to him becomes a nightmarish black comedy in Orson Welles’ memorable adaptation. Baroque, surreal and graphically striking, it plays like a two hour dream sequence. Essential Welles. The full film can be seen in okay quality here.
