Kafka

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.

There’s a secret group of ultra-powerful men running amuck, controlling how society operates, and they’re quick to dispose of anyone who gets in their way.

That’s bad news for Jeremy Irons, portraying a lowly insurance clerk who almost accidentally wanders into their twisted world after the murder of a co-worker.

Working with a cast filled to the brim with A-list supporting actors, director Steven Soderbergh unspools a story of paranoia and privilege, crafting a film begging for rediscovery.

Irons and Soderbergh won Oscars for other films, but this pairing deserved all the awards.
