Maron does it again, I’m afraid. You want a 2 hour conversation will the decidedly eccentric director of The French Connection, The Exorcist & Sorcerer? You’ve got it! Friedkin doesn’t do interviews these days, so this is something of a coup. Plenty on Gene Hackman , Linda Blair, Roy Scheider, the Turin Shroud – I kid you not – & why 35 mm prints are shite. Maron of course remains as whackable as ever for those so inclined, but even if you loathe him, this is a chat with the guy who set up a 90 MPH car chase through NYC in regular traffic with no permission, the cameraman in the car protected by a mattress!
