The Parallax View is a dark 1974 suspense-thriller revolving around one man's mission to prove a long-standing conspiracy theory regarding a group of journalists. The film is based on a novel by Loren Singer, and was adapted to screen by David Giler, Lorenzo Semple Jr., and Robert Towne. Alan J. Pakula directs. The film provides an accurate reflection of the widely-held sentiments regarding the assassination of JFK and the Nixon administration that surfaced during the late 1970's. Joseph Frady (Warren Beatty), an investigative journalist, notices the reporters and journalists surrounding the death of an assassinated U.S. Senator begin to disappear shortly after reporting on the incident. Curious to unveil the truth behind the murders and disappearances, Frady investigates the scene and finds a shady institute for therapy called The Parallax Corporation. Frady is convinced the Parallax is behind all the murders, so he embarks on a mission to break into the corporation and unmask the truth behind its motives.
