Entertainment Reviews:

Film Comment - 01/01/2011
"By the times things end with a spectacular act of political violence, the film feels like the missing link between THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE's hallucinatory paranoia and the diffuse Watergate-era cynicism of NASHVILLE."
A.V. Club - 02/16/2011
"If anything, the movie is ahead of its time for staging a violent climax at a political event years before NASHVILLE, THE PARALLAX VIEW, or THE DEAD ZONE..." -- Grade: B
Sight and Sound - 04/01/2011
"The film's message has only become more relevant....Perkins gives an inspired, superbly modulated performance..."

Product Description:

Paul Newman served as co-producer of this allegorical drama and stars as Rheinhardt, a opportunistic drifter who ends up in New Orleans and hits up his old friend Farley (Laurence Harvey), a con man-turned-phony preacher, for a job. Farley is able to get Rheinhardt hired on as an announcer at a local radio station, WUSA, but the station is a right-wing propaganda mill that devotes its air time to venomous tirades against political and social progress. Rheinhardt is happy to be making decent money, and he makes the friendly acquaintance of a local working girl, Geraldine (Joanne Woodward), so he refuses to look his gift horse in the mouth. However, when he finds out that WUSA is actually involved in shadowy political actions, he is at a loss for what to do, especially after a naïve and troubled social worker (Anthony Perkins) is tricked into starting a race riot. Robert Stone wrote the screenplay, adapted from his novel A HALL OF MIRRORS.
