The French Connection Movie Review

I’m tellin’ ya, just as sure as I know you picked your feet in Poughkeepsie, that car is dirty!  Take it apart again until you find it!

One Word Movie Review: GREAT

The French Connection starts with horns blaring in your face as the opening credits shoot across the screen, foreshadowing a shouting, noisy ride across the heroin trade in New York City.  It ends with those same horns blowing a dissonant, subdued tune of chaos and futility and perfectly capturing this great movie starring Gene Hackman as a bulldog cop who can’t let go of a hunch and directed by William Friedkin who uses the honest streets of New York as you rarely see them, full of abandoned lots, grimy diners and dead ends.
