This review is from: The French Connection [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Brilliant. Contains one of the three best chase scenes ever filmed (the other two occuring in Bullit and French Connection II). I absolutely love the ending to this movie. Indeed, as a another reviewer points out, it was haunting (same for the ending to French Connection II). Gene Hackman's performance is flawless. This is just another fine example of the amazing filmmaking that occured between the years 1969 and 1975. Awesome, pure, unfettered, and raw. Ahhh, if we could only have movies like this made today ...
