William Friedkin’s SORCERER
(R, 1977, 121 min)

This action thriller follows the story of four desperate men hired to transport volatile explosives through the South American jungles while facing obstacles and their own inner demons. Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer, and Francisco Rabal play men who, for various reasons, cannot return to their own countries. They end up in a dismal South American town where an American oil company is seeking out courageous drivers willing to haul nitroglycerin over 200 miles of treacherous terrain. The stateless men have nothing to lose and, besides, they’ll be paid 10,000 dollars apiece, and be granted legal citizenship, if they survive.

Michael Cimino’s THUNDERBOLT & LIGHTFOOT: 50th Anniversary!
(R, 1974, 104 min)

While stealing a car, free-spirited drifter Lightfoot (Jeff Bridges) crosses paths with legendary thief Thunderbolt (Clint Eastwood) in the midst of his own escape. Thunderbolt’s old partners in crime, Red (George Kennedy) and Eddie (Geoffrey Lewis), believe he double-crossed them after they robbed a Montana bank vault several years ago. After Thunderbolt successfully pleads his innocence and is let off the hook, Lightfoot rallies them together as a group to rob the very same bank again.
