Directed by William Friedkin | 1971

With Gene Hackman, Roy Scheider, Fernando Rey

“A knockout police thriller with so much jarring excitement that it almost calls for comic-book expletives. POW! ZOWIE!”
—Time Magazine

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