Original Title: The French Connection
Police partners Doyle and Russo put a candy store under surveillance based on a hunch that something fishy was going on. Eventually it turns out that the proprietors are involved in one of the biggest narcotics smuggling rings on either side of the Atlantic, and the cops go to work.
Jimmy "Popeye" Doyle and Buddy Russo are Brooklyn-based NYPD narcotics detectives who often work undercover. They make a lot of arrests, but they are all of small time users, busting who which makes no dent in the NYC drug trade. While the two are out for drinks one night at a club, Popeye sees a table of people which to him doesn't seem right, the people who include an unknown "big spender" out of his league next to known organized drug criminals. Just for fun, they decide to tail the big spender and his girl. Beyond the couple's obvious suspicious activity, they find out that they are Sal and Angie Boca, small time crooks who own and operate a Brooklyn newsstand/luncheonette. Based on other evidence including information from one of their snitches of rumors of a major drug shipment entering New York, Popeye and Buddy get the official albeit reluctant OK from their superior to surveil Sal to find if he leads them to the incoming drug shipment, that surveillance including authorization for wiretaps. That surveillance does show that Sal is connected and that the probable persons selling the drugs are two Frenchmen having recently arrived in the city. It then becomes a game of cat and mouse as Sal and the two Frenchmen, Alain Charnier and his muscle Pierre Nicoli, are aware that they are being tailed, the two Frenchmen in particular who are willing to go to any lengths to protect their investment, estimated street worth of approximately $32 million. Popeye, Buddy and their third, Mulderig, who has an antagonistic relationship with Popeye due to Mulderig's belief that Popeye's police work led to the death of a colleague, have to learn when the lead is not the three men but the locale of the drugs themselves.
I'd heard about this film for some time. I thought it was either about fashion or some sort of Audrey Hepburn comedy. I was surprised to discover that it was a very considered stakeout film.
This is a gritty New York, with dirt and mud on the pavements, wild steam vents from the sewers, and fake blood that has a hot sauce quality to it. While America likes to imagine itself as the leader of the first world, this film reminds us that the sanitized New York of today is a very recent development.
The story begins slowly, but before long I was captivated. The dialogue is sparse but very realistic, and I enjoyed the documentary-style footage. The soundtrack is the only assertive aspect of the film, in the sense that the music overshadows the images at times.
Much is left unsaid in The French Connection, but the narrative is easy to follow. It assumes intelligence on the part of the viewer, which I appreciated. Hackman and all of the actors are extremely convincing. Even the mobsters exhibit fear and concern. In short, the characters are very nuanced.
However, I take issue with the portrayal of minorities in the film. Hackman's character spits out racist drivel against Latinos and blacks, who are only really portrayed as dealers or car thieves. This remains true to his character, but as a person of color I still disliked watching it. My sense is that Hackman's role in 'The Royal Tannenbaums' deliberately echoed this performance, in which he assaults Danny Glover with similar bigoted slurs. Surely, he is acting but methinks he plays the part a little too well.
This film was ground breaking at the time, and it still is today. The movie amazingly holds up today because of its high standards. It introduced audiences to on the fly police investigation. What's interesting about the film is that the criminal is more of a stand up citizen than the police officer, it also nicely documents New York city in 1970/71. It's such an iconic film in terms of action, police drama, and style.
William Friedkin brought to mainstream cinema, at the time, his signature style of Induced-Documentary; which is now abused to the extent that it becomes amateurish. Although if used for the right reason, like The Shield, which is pretty much French Connection as a TV SHOW, it can be something great. As much as Friedkin hates movies today based on comic books, toys, video games, and remakes; he's partially to blame. His films and The French Connection in particular are always cited as the realist basis on which most of these films and shows are based on (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, 24, The Shield, Breaking Bad, Iron Man films, Captain America 2, The Bourne Trilogy, CSI, etc). Don't even get me started on the car chase, because i can write a thousand page paper about it.
The French Connection is a film of almost incredible suspense, and it includes, among a great many chilling delights, the most brilliantly executed chase sequence I have ever seen. [8 October 1971]
The word "frog" is often used as a derogatory term for someone of French descent. When Popeye refers to Charnier as "Frog One," he's trying to distinguish Charnier from his partner, Pierre Nicoli. It can also be a way to show Popeye's generally bigoted attitude. He's deliberately trying to confuse Willy into making a confession. Poughkeepsie is a small city about 80 miles north of New York on the Hudson River. Willy may have a drug connection up there that buys product from him and sells it in that region. His line, which is somewhere along the lines of "when was the last time you picked your feet in Poughkeepsie" is basically nonsense. Repeating it and variations of it including only Poughkeepsie or just when the person has last "picked their feet", over and over in a threatening manner, is a tactic meant to bewilder the subject. While the criminal is desperately trying to figure out what this sentence is a code for, the interrogators intersperse the badgering with actual questions like "who's your connection Willie, what's his name!?" and "is it Joe the barber?" The totally confused criminal up against the wall, doesn't know what this Poughkeepsie thing is, but it sounds bad and he sure didn't do it. So to take the questioning away from this mysterious act the police think he's performed, that must be pretty terrible, Willie admits to what they really want to know out of fear. This tactic/phrase was actually developed by the character that Gene Hackman played, in real life (the movie is loosely based on a true story).

Putting the car back together after spending several hours tearing it apart would have taken at least twice as long, plus there was the actual damage they caused to the interior while ripping out upholstery, carpeting & other trim. From there it'd be a simple matter of buying a new Lincoln, pulling out the rocker panels in that one & stashing the heroin & transferring the license plates to it.
