Directed by William Friedkin | 1977

With Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer, Francisco Rabal

"Sorcerer trumps today's event filmmaking with every mud puddle and pit stain, with rain- and sweat-streaked actors who never look like they've just swanned from the trailer to the green screen."
—Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice

Friedkin’s dream project was this loose take on Clouzot’s suspense classic The Wages of Fear, in which he fleshes out the characters’ backstories and ups the grittiness factor. Four lost souls are brought together to transport a truckload of explosive nitroglycerin across a foreboding South American jungle—and one seriously rickety rope bridge—in this palm-sweatingly tense thriller. Tangerine Dream’s pulse-pounding electronic score heightens the quivering, existential dread. “An underrated masterpiece directed—Tangerine Dream’s electronic score was dark and deep” (John Carpenter).
