Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Friedkin Uncut offers an introspective insight into the life and artistic journey of William Friedkin, an extraordinary and offbeat director of cult films such as The French Connection, The Exorcist & Sorcerer. For the first time Friedkin opens up, guiding the audience on a fascinating journey through the themes and stories that have influenced his life and his artistic career. Thanks to an 'all star' cast of friends and collaborators (including Francis Ford Coppola, Quentin Tarantino, Willem Dafoe, Matthew McConaughey, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Shannon), we discover stories, anecdotes, and discuss what being an artist really means in order to celebrate the one and only Billy Friedkin and the fun and passion of making art.

Although Friedkin was notoriously grandiose at certain stages of his career, he comes across as mostly calm, self-deprecating and centered here, at least when he's concentrating on the nuts and bolts of moviemaking.

Friedkin Uncut is at its most gripping when it discusses two early hits, The French Connection and The Exorcist, in which the theme of goodness struggling with the dark side explodes.

The film’s “star” and his work, his actors, his peers, his filmdom fans are all that matter. And they’re packed into this 107 minute biography and fan letter.
