TRIAL, THE | Out Now

Based on a novel by Franz Kafka, The Trial is a paranoid masterpiece directed by Orson Welles (Citizen Kane, Touch of Evil). 

Josef K (Perkins, Psycho) is arrested, but has no idea what crime he is accused of. In order to find out what offence he is meant to have committed, and to protest his innocence, Josef must go through the machinations of the judicial system, but he soon finds himself trapped in a dehumanised nightmare, and not even his lawyer, a family friend, is able to help. 

The Trial is considered by some to be Welles’ best film, placing it above even such classics as Chimes at Midnight, Touch of Evil or The Lady From Shanghai.
