French Connection II – 1975 Frankenheimer

I’ve seen the French connection (1971) from Friedkin many times but this was my first foray into john frankeheimer’s  French connection II (1975). I’ve never heard anyone talk about it or tell me I should see it and I’ve been pretty obsessive about movies for about 18 years. In comparison with the original--the sequel is no match. That’s clear and probably why it doesn’t have an amazing reputation. The Godfather Part II it is not… … that said. I’m putting it in the archives in the lower portion of the 1975 archives—near the 25th-30th best film of 1975. Frankenheimer
