The French Connection (1971)
Roy Scheider's kind of a racist. No: Gene Hackman is. Also, Roy Scheider comes by Gene Hackman's apartment and Gene Hackman's been handcuffed to the bed by some girl. They're buddies, these partners. Some French guy is engaged in some kind of smuggling operation, and there's a long, famous car chase in New York City. In the end I think the bad guy actually gets away. This movie is incredibly '70s.
Hello from the morally ambiguous world of 1970s narrative!
