New Digital Restoration!
United States | 1977 | William Friedkin
Roy Scheider stars in William Friedkin’s big-budget reimagining of The Wages of Fear (see 8/4 at 6:50). Four desperate men of differing nationalities come together in South America to transport explosive nitroglycerine by truck across 300 miles of treacherous jungle roads. A huge critical and box office flop when first released, Friedkin’s follow-up to The Exorcist is now regarded by some as a masterpiece. (Friedkin himself ranks this nail-biter as one of his best movies.) Music by Tangerine Dream. Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 121 min.
