Frankenheimer Fest At Film Forum

This weekend kicks off a John Frankenheimer 14 film festival at Film Forum with screenings of one of his most famous films, The Manchurian Candidate. A staple of the '60s, creating lasting impressions of Cold War paranoia and intrigue, Frankenheimer's films can be weird and thrilling simultaneously. Even more incentive to catch Manchurian on the big screen, is to better compare it with Jonathan Demme's remake currently being shot with Liev Schreiber, Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep stepping into the ruthless mother role immortalized by Angela Landsbury.
