THE FRENCH CONNECTION

THE FRENCH CONNECTION

Cops, robbers, a monumental car chase above New York, a huge shipment of heroin about to hit the streets:  nothing so out of the ordinary for a Hollywood shoot-em-up, and yet, Gene Hackman in a pork pie hat, the stylish Fernando Rey as the mastermind crim, the ever reliable Roy Scheider all point to something more surprising- who would have thought that the director of The Birthday Party could have crafted a thriller of such incredible suspense?
