(1971) Directed by William Friedkin. Gene Hackman, Roy Scheider, Fernando Rey. (104 min.) Rated R.

Part of the Car Crazy film series. Based on the true crime story of New York City’s largest drug bust, this rattling neo-noir thriller was Oscar’s Best Picture, also winning for Best Actor, Director, Writing, and Editing. Hackman’s alarmingly passionate racist cop trails an urbane drug dealer through urban alleys, skidding through cinema’s premier car pursuit. “Hits the sweet spot of urban grit” (New York Sun).
