By the time Sorcerer gets around to its rain-soaked, rickety-bridge set piece, you'll either be obsessed or fully checked out. Give yourself a chance to pick sides.

First and foremost a lavish entertainment, no matter its brief examination of oil politics.

Friedkin's cyclical, almost Kafkaesque insistence that politics revolves around now globalized, corporate power delegating hired guns to do under-the-table bidding across national boundaries announces itself through the soundscape.

...a palpably overlong drama that's rife with superfluous scenes and subplots...

[...] a defiant, mad gesture of a film that features some of the most exhilarating sequences in movie history.

Over the years, a certain mystique has surrounded Friedkin's dark tale, as is so often the case with lost films. Unlike many of them, though, Sorcerer delivers.

Is it any wonder the film slipped into obscurity almost immediately after release? With the number of issues that pile up by the end of these two hours, an incredibly misleading title ends up being the least of its worries.

It's easy to be repelled by the film's relentless bleakness, but it's even easier to be entranced by its immense scale, impeccable craft and astonishing suspense.

Breathtaking in its cinematography, production design and sound work, Sorcerer is a worthy contender for the film with the most suspenseful set-pieces in Hollywood history - if such an arbitrary title existed.

The new movie is handsomely shot and crisply edited. Why, then, does one rather distantly respect it instead of just plain liking it? It is an odd, disappointing feeling to take away from a summertime movie.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Friedkin's Sorcerer is just as gripping and spine-tingling an adventure film as The Wages of Fear and, at times, surpasses the original film with breathtaking photography and a superb use of sound

Friedkin's maldit analysis of The Wages of Fear retains Clouzot's perverse punchline and adds plenty of its own

It's rare that a remake lives up to the original upon which it was based, but "Sorcerer" is that exceptional movie.

Sorcerer is simply riveting cinema, one of the most enthralling, suspenseful and heart-stopping films I have ever seen.

William Friedkin's Sorcerer is a painstaking, admirable, but mostly distant and uninvolving suspenser based on the French classic The Wages of Fear.

An existential suspense movie, Sorcerer is a masterpiece, and one of Friedkin's best.

Friedkin hints at political themes, but the film suffers most from condescendingly over-emphatic direction, and a generally tedious, relentless grimy realism in the opening half hour.

A damned riveting film, from start to finish

August 21, 2005


Though not a patch on the Clouzot movie, it is still rather gripping, the photography is superb, there is an excellent use of sound and an eerie electronic score by Tangerine Dream.
