Interview: Friedkin on the 2002 Australian Re-Release of Sorcerer.

When Sorcerer was first released in Australia, a distributor cut the first 29 minutes. Approached by film historian Jim Sherlock to show the original version, a still-appalled Friedkin was delighted to get involved.

William Friedkin: “It’s extremely intense and it tests the patience of an audience often. But of all the films I’ve made — and some of them are among the biggest moneymakers — that’s the one that is most referred to by people. That’s the one I get the most letters about from film students and young people. It touches a chord in people.”
