The Manchurian Candidate (1962) ****

It's funny how some of the acting in this film is what dates it and not the actual content/events.
That said, most of the acting is superb and most of the shots/editing is as well.
I don't understand why Janet Leigh, who is barely in the film and is serviceable at best (she's not given much to work with) is billed before Angela Lansbury, who steals the movie.
The subject matter is timeless.
A powerful film that still contains moments of shock.

Now repeat after me: "Daniel Sardella is the bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life."
