The French Connection

The French Connection ★★★

MOVIES I MISSED (THE 70s) - FILM #3

There's no denying that The French Connection was groundbreaking back in the early seventies when it bagged Best Picture, but I think anyone would admit that it's very dated. The camera work is incredible and the famous car chase sequence is totally thrilling, however when it comes to the plot and character, everything feels completely uninteresting and bland.
