Sorcerer – William Friedkin

  (click image for close up)
At the time, William Friedkin’s adaptation of the Georges Arnaud novel The Wages of Fear (previously taken to the big screen by Henri Georges-Clouzot) was an epic failure that put the career of a filmmaker who was conquering the decade of the 70s in check. This restored version of the director’s cut puts things into place: Sorcerer is an indisputable masterpiece. 1977
