Andrew Sarris: “A visual and aural textbook on everything that is wrong with current movies.”

Take a quick glance at this review, and you’ll figure out that Andrew Sarris didn’t like Sorcerer. His piece in The Village Voice (July 18, 1977) actually spends more time discussing The Wages Of Fear (1953) and The Exorcist (1973) than it does beating up Friedkin’s masterpiece.

In the spring and summer of 1977, people were sure saying nasty things about this movie.

This illustration of just how different opinions can be seems appropriate on Election Day.
