That’s a cracker list. I saw them all on original release and often since.

Nice, Only one I've managed in a cinema was a couple of big screen visits for A Clockwork Orange. Would love to have seen Wake in Fright or Straw Dogs on the big screen, esp.

So weird. On a whim I watched The French Connection over the weekend - first time since the ‘70’s, and then saw this article! Loved Popeye Doyle so much that I was going to watch the sequel but Ebert’s review suggested I give it a swerve. Will have to go back and revisit some of these other titles now.
