The French Connection micro-review


It took me over two months and multiple attempts to even get through this movie. Two months is a long time for a Netflix disc to not get turned around, by the way. Yeah, yeah, I lost some time planning and executing a wedding, a honeymoon, a move, but this was two hours (ugh, due to multiple attempts at watching it, closer to three hours) I had a heck of a time getting through. On this, the final attempt (semi-successful, since the film is now definitively watched), around half-way through I pulled up some internet sources to explain the film to me. Not just what it was about (which was not yet clear), and what was going on, but why people think it’s a good film. Ugh.

I guess people liked the car chase?
