In English, French, Spanish, and German with English subtitles.
Friedkin’s visually stunning film follows small-time crook Roy Scheider from Brooklyn to the sweltering jungles of South America, where he lands a job hauling nitroglycerine with hard-luck losers Bruno Cremer and Francisco Rabal. Rather than simply remake Henri-Georges Clouzot’s famed WAGES OF FEAR, Friedkin re-imagined the story as a bleak, cosmic vision of man vs. nature, climaxing in the mind-bending image of Scheider and crew literally pushing a loaded truck across a spindly rope bridge.
