Welcome to the inaugural episode of our new podcast series “The Quintessentials”!
Here we will be identifying and excavating a sub canon of important films that, for whatever reason, have been lost to time or overshadowed by their more popular or successful counterparts in a a chosen filmmaker’s oeuvre. These are the b-sides, the rarities, the deep dive picks… And while they’re almost never the most well known or celebrated selections in a body of work, they might just be–covertly–the filmmaker’s most instructive, stylistically-defining, and quintessential movies.
For our first episode we figured we’d start with a layup- William Friedkin’s genre-defying 1977 masterpiece SORCERER.
Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
