Sorcerer

Sun, Jul 5 2015 7:00 pm - 9:05 pm

$11.00

Doomed to flop by opening a month after Star Wars and saddled with a confusing title (“Where are the wizards?”), Sorcerer is a deeply fatalistic, brutal thriller about four desperate crooks, including a haggard and brilliant Roy Scheider, in Central America tasked with driving cases of nitroglycerin through the deep and terrible jungles. It takes an hour to kick off but it is thoroughly entertaining and even jaw-dropping in a harrowing bridge sequence. You can feel the sweat, the need, and the energy of this movie even through a screen. –Conor Crockford
