Fans Of The Exorcist: This Is A Must Watch

The documentary marks the sixth feature doc from Philippe and continues his thoughtful analysis of iconic genre films, previously with 78/52: HITCHCOCK'S SHOWER SCENE (2017), MEMORY: THE ORIGINS OF ALIEN (2019), and DOC OF THE DEAD (2014). LEAP OF FAITH: WILLIAM FRIEDKIN ON THE EXORCIST was produced by Kerry Deignan Roy and Executive Produced by Karyn Kusama, Matt Manfredi, Phil Hay, Joey Porcelli, Randy Pharo."

The Exorcist

I am about to say something really controversial…I don't get the big deal about The Exorcist. It is an extremely well-made film, and I can completely understand why it freaked so many people out a long time ago. Ever time I watch it now, I like it less and less. Again, well done, and Friedkin is a master filmmaker. But the film does nothing for me anymore. Hopefully, Leap of Faith can ring me back to the fold, but I am not holding my breath here. It will debut on Shudder November 19th.
