Sorcerer @ www.cinemascream.co.uk

Here’s a film.

Four men transporting highly unstable nitroglycerin across the jungle in a couple of old trucks.

A real film.

Essentially lost for 37 years, Sorcerer is one of those sweaty, tough and tense as all hell existential movies that remind you why you like cinema and why directors like William Friedkin are so vital.  The film puts you in the driving seat, on that bridge, that bridge, and in range of those explosives.  Unfortunately, it came out in the summer of 1977 and the rest is history.

Here’s a film that’s very highly recommended.
