THE FRENCH CONNECTION

1971 ***** 104 mins.

Absolutely spectacular cop film from director William Friedkin. Gene Hackman is Popeye Doyle, a New York cop who has a method all his own. The Oscar-winning direction by William Friedkin (youngest director to win, at age 26) is superb, and the action and excitement don't let up for a second. This film won the Oscar for Best Picture, 1971. Don't miss it!
