Cinema Egzotik: William Friedkin Night

He’s an old-school professional who knows his stuff as a director of thrillers and horror films. For all of two months Egzotik will be paying tribute to veteran filmmaker William Friedkin, who has gone down in film history as the genius behind the most thrilling car chase ever as well as the most unforgettable exorcism in The French Connection and The Exorcist respectively.

Egzotik programmer Martin Koolhoven explains. 'We’ve screened films by Friedkin on two previous occasions, but it was high time to deliver the crown jewels. Two immensely influential films that changed the cinematic landscape forever. Without The French Connection, Paul Verhoeven would not have made Turkish Delight, Hill Street Blues would not have happened and who knows what else. These two films clearly reflect Friedkin’s documentary background – and that includes The Exorcist.' 

The French Connection

William Friedkin US 1971 104’ English spoken, Dutch subtitles.
Friedkin filmed Robin Moore’s novel about the experiences of two New York detectives Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle (Gene Hackman) and Buddy Russo (Roy Scheider), cops who don’t like to play by the book. Police brutality, blunt dialogues plus seat-gripping tension as the chase scene in Brooklyn explodes into action. Popeye cleans up the town and gets rid of all that nasty white powder. The film won five Oscars, including the Oscar for Best Actor (Hackman).

The Exorcist

William Friedkin US 1973 122’ English spoken, Dutch subtitles.
The Exorcist shocked the audiences when it was released. In Friedkin’s adaptation of William Peter Blatty’s titular novel, Linda Blair stars as demon-possessed twelve-year-old Regan who desperately needs a visit from the exorcist. What follows is a mano a mano between Father Merryn (Max von Sydow ), Father Karras (Jason Miller) and the Evil One, with all the cursing, vomiting and fervent praying we might expect from a good exorcism. Did it work? Part II was released in 1977, with the Prince of Darkness as strong as before.... The film collected eight Oscar nominations.

On 13 July it's time for Cinema Egzotik: William Friedkin Sequel Night with a double bill screening of The French Connection II (1975) and Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977).
