I first saw this film on TV years ago and I was quite impressed. The film was listed as film of the week in the weekend papers, so I taped it. Since then I had been wanting to give it a second viewing, but it wasn't available anywhere.
The film itself draws parallels with the various political assassinations of the 1960s, particularly the death of Robert Kennedy. From here you'll have to watch it yourself, but Pakula builds a thriller based around secretive organisations and paranoia.
Well worth viewing, and it gets better everytime. You might need to watch the ending again to understand it.
Beatty is impressive (if, perhaps, a little too hunky) as the laid-back and initially disbelieving Frady, who rejects the theories of ex-girlfriend Paula Prentiss’ Lee Carter that the motives behind the assassination of a Senator (in a impressive sequence on the top of the Seattle Space Needle – recalling Hitchcock’s Statue Of Liberty denouement in Saboteur) are being obscured by ‘knocking off’ witnesses one by one. Pakula sets up the 'faceless men in suits’ (up to no good) ambience brilliantly – including the superb scene of the official enquiry announcing its judgement/'whitewash’ ('there will be no questions’) – which keeps us guessing as to who or what is behind the mysterious events, as Frady goes off in pursuit of other witnesses.Read more ›
I find discovering these forgotten gems to be one of the reasons why I am a film buff. I watched this with my wife (who knows I like some weird stuff) and we couldn't stop talking about it afterward, trying to figure out what happened (or seemed to) and talking about what certain characters were really doing.
I am a fan of this director's other films , such as KLUTE and ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN. The films exert a pull on the viewer and can be hypnotic. Highly recommended - don't read about the film's plot beforehand, just buy it.

Has some of the usual problems with 1970s films but, taken all round, this is a must-watch movie.Published 21 days ago by Robin Brace
An absolute classic, i'm very surprised at some of the negative comments about this film but everybody has different tastes i suppose. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Julian Marsh
Somewhat dreary and lacks clarity. More historical interest, rather than a good watch.
Beatty isn't up to much, perhaps the Brad Pitt of his day.......
