In Alan Pakula’s Klute, a New York call girl assists a small-town detective in solving a missing persons case. The first film in what has since been dubbed Pakula’s Paranoia Trilogy; Klute was followed by The Parallax View (1974) and All the President’s Men (1976). While the later films in the trilogy are explicit in exploring growing distrust in the American government in the wake of Vietnam and Watergate, Klute instigates the tone of surveillance and instability that would inflect the cinema of the era. Starring Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland and Roy Schneider, Klute was also lensed by master cinematographer Gordon Willis.
