Friedkin is an engaging raconteur, even (or especially) when he's rambling through half-formed thoughts...

Always a good show, even when the subject is saying things so wild or silly that they make the viewer's eyes roll like tires tumbling down a steep mountainside in Friedkin's jungle thriller Sorcerer.

August 23, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

For all his career ups and downs, he has remained devoted to making genuinely challenging and exciting work, and has succeeded more often than not. The documentary serves as a strong incitement to dig into it.

Unfortunately, Francesco Zippel's fawning, cookie-cutter tribute is nothing more than an add-on for a DVD box set, were they still making those.

This enjoyable doc records a Hollywood master looking back at his career with lucid hindsight and irony.

September 3, 2018 | Full Review…

At best, Friedkin Uncut is a serviceable EPK on whatever Friedkin film is set to get yet another Blu-ray release. Flat, lifeless, superficial. Just a slog.
