The French Connection

The French Connection ★★★★½

This classic procedural impresses mostly with how largely improvised it is while still riveting. It is a taut, gritty, and very well-directed thriller based on a true story that features superb performances (Gene Hackman is astounding), fantastic editing, and a deft combination of narcotics detective work and crime thrills—with one helluva chase scene in particular.
