Join us for a Vidiots tribute to the remarkable film career of William Friedkin with his heart-pounding detective thriller, The French Connection. Gene Hackman stars as gruff narcotics detective ‘Popeye’ Doyle who is in hot pursuit of a suave French drug dealer (Buñuel regular Fernando Rey) who may be the key to a huge heroin-smuggling operation. Considered one of the best American films ever made, this masterpiece garnered five Academy Awards and has made AFI’s top 100 list.
