William Friedkin Gets Awarded in Venice
Story: William Friedkin Interview - The Guardian
William Friedkin has had a busy and storied career! At this year's Venice Film Festival, he has been awarded wtih a career achievement award. And, his own most-favorite film, 1977's atmospheric "Sorcerer" has been restored and will be shown.
I personally love the film, it is very exciting in its complete dedication to showing the plight of four lost men as they make a desperate attempt to deliver nitroglycerin through an unforgiving jungle climate.
The film is to be released relatively soon on Blu-ray, which should be very sweet! Up till now, it's only been available in pan-and-scan 4:3 ration on VHS and DVD. I highly recommend giving the film a chance!
