All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

These are not astonishing anecdotes, but they are, by and large, entertaining ones: Friedkin is as deft a storyteller on camera as he is behind it.

Top Critic

The 84-year-old veteran director remains an articulate and forceful presence onscreen, refreshingly unburdened by modesty and clearly keen to display his highbrow cultural smarts.

October 7, 2019 | Full Review…

The real reason to watch it is to observe a filmmaker reminiscing on his most popular, most personal film, and to see what he's learned... in the intervening decades.

February 12, 2020 | Full Review…

Friedkin alternates theory with production specifics to give a fully rounded and fleshed-out account of the singular achievement The Exorcist is.

February 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Not influenced by ego or career, Friedkin is sincere and matter of fact as he gives the definitive oral history of one of the scariest films ever made.

February 5, 2020 | Full Review…

While some of the stories have been told elsewhere, you get the feeling here that Friedkin's truly an open book and relishing the opportunity to dig into his work nearly fifty years after the fact.
