POPEYE’S HERE!!!!! In celebration of the life and work of the recently departed William Friedkin, we dig into the movie that netted him a Best Director Oscar and also took home the grand prize of Best Picture: 1971’s The French Connection! We discuss the character of Popeye Doyle, Friedkin’s clever ways of subverting copaganda, and we examine the impact that his filmmaking style has on modern day cinema. After our discussion we count down some of our favorite Best Picture winners (I left Rocky and The Godfather off my list because what more can be said??).
