Director John Frankenheimer camps in a unique place in the story of American film. Too young to be active during Hollywood’s last great period before it fell into stagnancy but too old to be considered part of the hot-shot New American Cinema movement, Frankenheimer instead navigated the Cold War cinema of the early sixties, crafting some of his best known work like The Manchurian Candidate and Birdman of Alcatraz. And for all of the accolades heaped upon those movies, for my money, 1966’s Seconds remains his crowning achievement.
