MOVIE REVIEW✏ . . The Exorcist is directed by William Friedkin and stars Linda Blair and Ellen Burstyn as a teenage girl is possessed by a mysterious entity, her mother must seek the help of two priests to save her. So we have finally arrived to the apex of the horror genre and one of the best films ever made! It was only a matter of time, because as I've stated many times on this page, this is my favorite horror movie of all time! This is a film that evolves and grows with you over time and subsequent rewatches and still to this day, chills and unsettles me to my core. . . It's easy to look at this film as a basic demonic possession story, but that would be way oversimplifying it. We've seen hundreds of films about that, inspired by this one and none of them have ever reached the pinnacle this one did. And that's because this didn't rely on cheap jump scares or manufactured atmosphere in order to elicit a response. It took it's time. It allowed you to get involved in the relationship between Regan and her mother, so that when her descent began, it wasn't just scary, it was heartbreaking to watch. As a parent, the thought of losing your child, slowly, to an unknown, unstoppable force, is truly the most terrifying thing there is. I give most of the credit here to Burstyn and the way she sold the weight and emotion of this in her performance. So powerful. But of course this film wouldn't be the most iconic, generational hit there is, without the epic performance of Blair, both as the girl and the demonic force. The look, the dialogue, the actions and movements, they really pushed the boundaries in every conceivable way, to create one of the most frightening characters ever put to screen. No one had done anything like this in horror at the time, in terms of raw, unfiltered prestige cinema. . . The film is mostly tension building and winding up for the big release in the third act, but it's hard to complain when every moment leading up to it, means something to the story. The final act, when Max von Sydow comes in, is incredible and leads to some of the most visually stunning sequences in the entire film. One of the few perfect films in cinema. SCORE - 10/10

Far from a cult classic, William Friedkin’s neo-noir thriller masterpiece, The French Connection (1971), received Best Actor, Director and Picture honors at the 1972 Academy Awards. Based on Robin Moore’s 1969 non-fiction book bearing the same name, the film quickly draws audiences into the infamous worldwide heroin smuggling ring exhaustively diffused by local narcotics detectives like Jimmy “Popeye” Doyle (Gene Hackman) and Buddy "Cloudy" Russo (Roy Scheider). Beyond the genre-defining performances in just 104 minutes, here’s why you’re gonna want to join the stakeout: 🇫🇷 Widely lauded for Popeye Doyle’s frantic car chase in a civilian’s Pontiac LeMans beneath the (now) D train in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, my scene stealer was Cloudy/Popeye sharing a gross cup of coffee while surveilling Frog One’s immoderate meal at the bistro. 🇫🇷The last remaining place to see a gritty NYC is in the movies. Luckily, Detroit and Cleveland still offer plenty of current urban decay settings for filmmakers. 🇫🇷A 1986 NBC made for TV movie named Popeye Doyle starring Ed O’Neill is streaming for free on YouTube, one wonders how differently his filmography would look today had he passed on Married With Children a year later. . . . . . 📼: @20thcenturyfox

“A veces siento que todo está arruinado. Y entonces me doy cuenta de que la culpa es mía. O no es que yo tenga la culpa, ¡pero me culpan a mí!“ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Un secreto floreciendo entre las paredes de un traumático hogar. Eso es #Hereditary: Algo perturbador, es el miedo como ARTE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sigue a Annie, una artista que vive atormentada con sus culpas, conflictos y pasajes pasados de su vida. La tragedia le acaba de visitar: su madre ha muerto. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Se nos muestra un drama familiar que cocina una oscuridad suprema a fuego lento. Todo muy psicológico. Va in crescendo hasta la locura pero nunca recurriendo a clichés del género. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Además está llena de simbolismo y exige estar atento a las pistas que va dejando en el camino. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cuando estalla, lo hace con personalidad y en ese momento no hay vuelta atrás: Nadie va a detener esta pesadilla. Su clímax es TERROR PURO. Demasiados momentos agónicos en los que respirar con tranquilidad se vuelve imposible. Agobia hasta no dar más. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mucho se le comparó con #TheExorcist (1973, #WilliamFriedkin) pero las diferencio mucho. Sí respira a clásicos, pero más a #RosemarysBaby (1968, #RomanPolanski) y estéticamente, a su hermana perdida y no muy lejana: #TheWitch (2015, #RobertEggers). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Su cast: #ToniCollette rompió todo con su actuación. Es demencial. El resto también está a buen nivel, sobre todo #AlexWolff –con grandísimo peso en la trama-, y una muy incómoda #MillyShapiro, pero es que esta mujer ES DEMASIADO! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ¿La dirección? Impecable. Es visualmente fría, de atmósfera claustrofóbica y ese maquetado en el que nos sumergimos (me recordó a #TheShining, 1980, #StanleyKubrick, como la transformación de #Collette con la de #JackNicholson) es maravilloso. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Otra de esas pelis que ha dividido al mundo de forma gigante. La amas o la odias, y acá somos fieles defensores. Mi TOP 1 del 2018 sin dudas.

it_came_from_calebs_basement. After directing The French Connection and The Exorcist William Friedki

After directing The French Connection and The Exorcist William Friedkin torpedoed his rising career with the extremely underrated box office bomb Sorcerer. His attempt at a comeback resulted in Cruising with Al Pacino playing a cop who goes undercover to catch a killer stalking New York's gay s&m clubs. Unfortunately for Friedkin the film ended up becoming another bomb and one of the most controversial movies of the era. Like Taxi Driver the film does a great job capturing the feel of New York in the late 70s/early 80s and the soundtrack featuring The Germs is outstanding. Thanks to @arrowvideo for pulling this film out of obscurity and giving it this brand new blu ray release! #alpacino #cruising #williamfriedkin #arrowvideo #bluray #bluraycollection #bluraycollector

It’s about Friedkin time! Ask any Blu-ray collector for their most wanted titles and this would’ve been on many lists - it was certainly high on mine. I’m somewhat disappointed with the lack of original poster artwork on either side of the sleeve. Compared to the dvd (swipe) I still own, it’s a step down. Anyway, let’s go Cruising... #nowwatching #williamfriedkin #alpacino #karenallen #arrowvideo @arrowacademy #slipcase #80sfilms #80scinema #80smovies #newyorkcity #controversialfilms #movielover #moviebuff #filmlover #movies #films #filmbuff #cinephile #cinephilecommunity #movienight #ilovemovies #bluray #bluraycollector #bluraycollection #blurayaddict #discjunkie #physicalmedia
