Sorcerer

A film by William Friedkin
Starring Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer

William Friedkin’s 1977 remake of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Wages of Fear stars Roy Scheider in a story of tough guys driving truckloads of high explosives over hellacious South American roads. Featuring a pulsing score by Tangerine Dream, Sorcerer shifts Friedkin’s trademark urban settings to the depths of the jungle, where the director’s passion for realism and flawless instinct for suspense blend to masterful effect in the legendary, nerve-wrecking bridge-crossing scene. A difficult production to begin with, Sorcerer was a controversial film at the time of its release (a week after George Lucas’ Star Wars). Since then it has become one of Friedkin’s most critically praised titles and one of the hardest to experience on a big screen. Recently restored by Friedkin himself, we are delighted to bring this long underseen masterpiece back to theatres!
