  • Critic Reviews of "The Trial"

    Chicago Reader
    April 06, 2007

    Though debatable as an adaptation of the Franz Kafka novel, Orson Welles's nightmarish, labyrinthine comedy of 1962 remains his creepiest and most disturbing work; it's also a lot more influential than people usually admit.

    Time Out

    The blackest of Welles' comedies.

    New York Times
    May 10, 2005

    At best, it is another demonstration of the camera vers atility of Mr. Welles; at worse, a further Kafka demonstration extending to the demanding medium of the screen.

    Village Voice

    The Trial is splendid to look at and teeming with ideas about the individual, society, and of course, film itself.

    San Francisco Chronicle
    January 01, 2000

    The more Joseph tries to understand, the more impenetrable it becomes.

    Chicago Sun-Times
    January 01, 2000

    Above all a visual achievement, an exuberant use of camera placement and movement and inventive lighting.

    The legal system is a literal maze in Welles' visualization and the disparate locations all lead back to one another.

    Empire Magazine
    February 29, 2012

    Overwhelmingly bleak, but exciting cinema.

    February 29, 2012

    Labyrinthine, stylized and tragicomic, this adaptation of Kafka's novel sees Welles at his funniest, and his most despairing.

    Film Threat
    July 27, 2007

    Orson Welles' bounced Czech, via Kafka. Not the masterpiece that many Welles fanatics claim, but intriguing and outrageous enough for genuine appreciation.

    TV Guide
    August 29, 2006

    Welles applied his bravura directorial style to Kafka's landmark 1925 novel about Joseph K (Perkins), an office clerk who gets arrested without being told why.

    June 19, 2006

    While not exactly Kafka, every inch of it is most certainly Welles
