THE FRENCH CONNECTION

(1971, William Friedkin) Traffic problems in Brooklyn, as Gene Hackman’s Popeye Doyle (based on legendary cop Eddie Egan) car-chases a killer-bearing B train, after being schnookered by Fernando Rey in a cross-midtown shadowing topped by a classic subway door jamming. Multi-Oscared recreation of a legendary drug bust, with the real Egan as Hackman’s long-suffering boss. Approx. 104 min. DCP.
2:45, 7:00

THE BRINK’S JOB

(1978, William Friedkin) Cheap crook Peter Falk, along with ill-assorted gang Allen Garfield, Peter Boyle, Warren Oates and Paul Sorvino, take Brink’s HQ in Boston for millions. Near-farce treatment of the actual 1950 “crime of the century.” Approx. 104 min. 35mm.
