Francúzska spojka – Štvanica. Dnes už „zlatý štandard“ dokudrámy. Film nespočetne krát kopírovaný, doposiaľ však neprekonaný. William Friedkin začínal ako dokumentarista a Francúzska spojka je jeho prvým hraným filmom, kde mohol naplno využiť svoje dlhoročné dokumentaristické skúsenosti. Za výnimočnosťou tohto surového policajného thrilleru inšpirovanom skutočnými udalosťami a postavami dvoch neortodoxných policajtov však stojí iné filmové dielo. Film Z Costu-Gavrasa. V politicky angažovanom skutočnom príbehu zavraždenia gréckeho liberálneho prezidentského kandidáta Grigorisa Lambrakisa pracuje Costa-Gavras s “umelo vyvolaným dokumentárnym pocitom“. Prostredníctvom kamery z ruky, ktorá sa ľahko dostane kamkoľvek rúca tzv. štvrtú stenu a vyvoláva pocit, že sa pred zrakmi diváka prirodzene odvíja samotný príbeh, nie iba jeho zinscenovaná rekonštrukcia. Friedkin použitím tejto techniky vniesol do policajného thrilleru atmosféru bezprostrednej reality. Scény pripravoval bez kameramana, ktorý nevedel kde postavy budú a kam pôjdu, musel ich sledovať v reálnom čase a zachytiť scénu tak ako keby zaznamenával bežný deň na frekventovanej ulici... o to viac má divák počas legendárnej automobilovej naháňačky pocit, že sedí na sedadle spolujazdca v Pontiacu Lemans 1971, ktorý riadi neriadená strela Jimmy „Pepek“ Doyle.

The rally does happen, after which a three-wheeled kamikaze runs over the deputy, who eventually passes away from his injuries. The official report is that the incident was a drunken accident. In reality, the deputy's death was murder orchestrated by the secret police, the general for who likens the pacifist organization to mildew killing off agricultural crops. A magistrate is assigned to the case. Although he does have political views, he is more interested in finding out the truth, and as such has to wade through the political rhetoric and politically motivated testimony he hears. Thrown into the mix is a photojournalist who too is looking for the truth, as it, he believes, will make a great front page story. (http://www.imdb.com) Show more
