cold war climax

The Manchurian candidate. John Frankenheimer. I would say when this was released this movie set a new standard in theminds of the audience. This movie must have been a shock to the US watchers, who were right in the middle of their Cold war. I had to get used to Frank Sinatra playing the main role and there were some other liberties I had to get used to. But it is a good movie with some interesting facts. Sinatra is a first take actor, the out of perspective point of view is one of those (Sinatra never managed to get the same level after the first shot). Frankenheimer left it in, and was later praised for it. It was also not shown for years after the JFK assassination for unknown reasons (many theories on it). The movie main villain is also one of the best and deserves to be seen. (1962)
