Description

The Parallax View By Lorenzo Semple, Jr. Based on the novel by Loren Singer THE PARALLAX VIEW' EXT. INTERSTATE'HIGHWAY - NIGHT It's RAINING hard. We look out through the wet side window of a car parked on an overpass, above a long flat straight. HEADLIGHTS of another car come toward us down the highway, from total darkness, refracted by the trickling rain on the window into a parallactic double image. There's a BANG! like a tire blowing. The lights swerve and skid, with a brief staggering CRASH of steel and glass pile head-on at 75mph into cement abutment of the overpass. Then SILENCE settles again, and OVER THE PICTURE these words appear: "MAN'S IMAGE IS NOT ONLY THAT OP GOD, IT IS ALSO THAT OF SATAN. ^ . THE IMAGE IN THE ASCENDANT NOW CANNOT BE KNOWN TO US. PERHAPS • GOD' S IS* NOT THE TRIUMPH IN OUR TIME. --From The Handbook For Employees, the Bureau of Social Structure." EXT. BLACKTOP ROAD - DAY - A STATS POLICE CAR pursues a sedan at speed, siren and flashers going. .Around a curve with tires screaming, then the sedan brakes abruptly and pulls to a stop on the shoulder. INT./EXT. STOPPED SEDAN In the mirror the' DRIVER watches TWO YOUNG TROOPERS getting out of their car behind. He reaches out to his right, unobtrusively unlatches the passenger-side door. Then he gets a PISTOL from the glove compartment and slips it out of sight under road^map open on the seat beside him. Sitting cool and easy/ he watches the 1st Trooper stop back of his right rear fender.
