The Trial

There are those who argue that Orson Welles' masterful adaptation of Kafka's classic novel is the legendary filmmaker's finest hour. Dark and menacing, but shot through with flashes of jet-black humor, The Trial traces the nightmarish journey of doomed Josef K (an amazing Anthony Hopkins) who's trying escape his trial on mysteriously unspecified crimes. It's Kafka-esque in the truest sense of the word. In honor of Welles' 90th birthday, the Guild Cinema has hunted down a beautifully restored 35mm print. 118 minutes Unrated.
