Pic of the Day: Sorcerer (1977)


For today’s pic, I’m going with this shot of director William Friedkin (riding shotgun above) from Sorcerer (1977) as an excuse to share one of Friedkin’s quotes about the film from his two-plus hour interview with Marc Maron on WTF.

(Sorcerer is about) four strangers riding a load of dynamite and they hated each other and they were all flawed, but if they didn’t cooperate they would blow up together. And that, to me, then and now seems a metaphor for the world’s situation. You have all of these great powers, all going in different directions, and if they don’t get on the same page everything is going to blow up.
