William Friedkin’s title can’t help but conjure up images of a horror film. And why not? The man gave us The Exorcist.

French Connection II (1975)

On one hand, a sequel to The French Connection is completely logical. Popeye Doyle sees things through, probably more out of psychosis than out of any loyalty to law and order, and so it does make sense that he’d track the kingpin Alain Charnier all the way to Marseilles after the events of the first film. 773 more words
