The French Connection

How is it that I have gone 29 years as both a film nerd and as a geek for nearly all police procedural things without watching The French Connection until now?

Damn, what an awesome movie. Gene Hackman's character is great. The self-destructive obsessive cop is my favorite archtype and Doyle is the best one yet. Even better than Jimmy McNulty on The Wire, which shocks even me that I would say something that damning.

I'm going to try to get in a car chase that awesome tomorrow.

Best chases ever. Car chase, and foot chase (the opening sequence).
