The Center and Malcolm Weintraub hold the last installment of their three-week film series (Back-Story: Reel People at the Cherry) exploring the films of Orson Welles from the thematic lens of justice. It closes with what Welles considered his best film, The Trial (1962), based on the Franz Kafka of the same name. Anthony Perkins (Psycho) plays a young Josef K. held and charged for a crime that is never named. Three young women involved with his life and his lawyer (the antagonist, played by Welles) appear throughout as Josef perseveres and searches for the meaning of it all. The speaker Weintraub provides insight into the film’s production (marked for its expansive sets and distinctive cinematography), as well as relevant details on Welles’s life and character. [SS]
