    Exorcist II: The Heretic

    ★★★

    John Boorman was an interesting choice for director for the follow up film to The Exorcist. Five years earlier he had a hit with Deliverance. But the The Exorcist 2 falls right between Zardoz and Excalibur in his filmography. That would be a hell of a triple bill.

    Oppressive.

    Take every bad review that you have ever read about a Wes Anderson film and apply it to this movie. This is quirk for quirks sake.

    A lot has been said about the great soundtrack. I agree, the music on the soundtrack is fantastic. I also feel the same thing about the soundtrack from the film DAZED AND CONFUSED. And I also feel that both soundtracks are obvious and overwhelming.

    This movie drowns in its mise-en-scène. It has a…
