Directed by William Friedkin | 1971

With Gene Hackman,Fernando Rey,Roy Scheider,Tony Lo Bianco,Bill Hickman

“The French Connection remains the pinnacle for wholesome heroin-bust entertainment”
—Nicolas Rapold, The New York Sun

William Friedkin's gritty cat-and-mouse masterpiece is as tough as police thrillers come, with Hackman and Scheider as flawed-yet-dedicated cops out to intercept a huge heroin shipment arriving from France. Their pursuit of urbane kingpin Alain Charnier (Rey) to one of the most spectacular car chase scenes (shot along 86th St and Utrecht Ave) ever filmed.
