NEW RESTORATION
SORCERER

(1977) A professional hit in Vera Cruz; a terrorist bombing in Jerusalem; bank fraud and suicide in Paris; and a church robbery, priest wounding, and car crash in Jersey — Buñuel star Francisco Rabal, Amidou, Bruno Cremer, and French Connection’s Roy Scheider find themselves down and out in a nameless South American flea pit. How to get out? Easy. In the wake of an oil well explosion, just drive two rickety trucks carrying extremely unstable nitroglycerin through 200 miles of dense jungle to put it out. Following up his two successive smashes of The French Connection and The Exorcist, Friedkin’s spectacular remake of Clouzot’s classic The Wages of Fear grafts a whole lot more backstory and a whole different terrain onto the basic framework, with two hair-raising passages of heavy trucks driving in a tropical downpour on a decrepit, swaying suspension bridge over a raging river. Friedkin himself supervised this 4K restoration. Approx. 122 min. DCP restoration.
