The Manchurian Candidate
Dir. John Frankenheimer. 1962, 126 mins.
With Laurence Harvey, Janet Leigh. Sinatra is an Army Captain suffering from recurring nightmares in which a brainwashed soldier kills fellow Americans. The nightmares prove to be reality, part of a homegrown plot to bring totalitarianism to U.S. soil. This manic drama of paranoia and power is surely one of the strangest and strongest movies to ever come out of Hollywood.
