6 Filmmaking Tips From William Friedkin (7 movies items)

"WHAT WE'VE LEARNED In His "Career View" Of FRIEDKIN,NOEL MURRAY Of THE DISSOLVE Refers To The Director As A "MAN OF CONTRADICTIONS","Which Is Probably Why He's Made So Many Movies About People At War With Society And With Themselves".This Observation Perfectly Encapsulates FRIEDKIN's Work,From Canonized Achievements Like THE FRENCH CONNECTION To Forgettable Hollywood Entries Like THE HUNTED. FRIEDKIN Has Worked Across So Many Genres,But He Has Consistently Shown Interest In Outsiders,Weirdos "
