The 33rd Annual Olympia Film Festival presents
SORCERER
6:30pm


In a remote South American town, four expatriates on the run from the law are offered $10,000 and legal citizenship if they will transport a shipment of dangerously unstable nitroglycerin to an oil well 200 miles away. Led by Jackie Scanlon (Roy Scheider), the men set off on a hazardous journey, during which they must contend with treacherous terrain, unstable rope bridges, and attacks from local guerillas. A remake of Clouzot’s Wages of Fear, director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) actually improves on a perfect film. Originally released in 1977, a few weeks after Star Wars, Sorcerer immediately sunk without a trace. Roger Ebert called it “an overlooked classic.” With breathtaking cinematography, a brilliant score by Tangerine Dream and some of the most white-knuckle sequences in film history, Friedkin’s Sorcerer is a symphonic, boundary-pushing masterwork.
