The French Connection

The French Connection ★★★★½

It shouldn't be that good. It's mostly some cops following and chasing guys around new york looking for drugs. But it's bloody brilliant!

Gene Hackman is amazing as usual and Popeye is his best character for sure. The action choreography is amazing, even the car chase is great and the camerawork is fantastic.

Cleaned up at the oscars the year it came out and with good reason. And if you don't like it then you've clearly been picking your feet in Poughkeepsie!
