The Manchurian Candidate

Regizat de John Frankenheimer
Statele Unite, 1962


One of the greatest paranoid thrillers, and nastiest political satires ever made. Lawrence Harvey stars as a war hero who returns from a Korean War prison camp with a brain that was not only washed, but also starched, pressed, and folded. Angela Lansbury plays Harvey’s politically ambitious mother.

The film plays out one level as straightforward and gripping tale, and indeed could well be the first truly modern political thriller… But on another level, it’s a madcap fever dream that captures the tone of the most hysterical conspiracy theory, and on yet another, a bleak and epic revision of the Greek tragic mode for a malign epoch.

The Chinese and the Russians then conditioned Shaw to kill on command, disregarding “those uniquely American symptoms, guilt and fear”—never mind that those are the bread and butter not of Melville but of Dostoyevsky… The nightmares in which his hypnosis begins to “wear off” are the film’s strangest and most interesting scenes.

The disappearance of The Manchurian Candidate for nearly 25 years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy—reportedly but unofficially at the behest of a chastened and embarrassed Sinatra—only added to the film’s stature. Re-released to theatres and home video in the late ’80s, its outrageous vision of a country bedevilled by political polarization and paranoia was reactivated like a sleeper agent buried in deep cover.
