Blu-ray Review: William Friedkin’s ‘Sorcerer’

Let me state right off the top that I believe William Friedkin’s film Sorcerer is not only one of his best films but probably one of the most overlooked films of the classic packed era of the 70s.

Kicking off in a local dump, Trailer Park Boys: Don’t Legalize It revolves around the three incredible buffoons: John Paul Tremblay as Julian, Robb Wells as Ricky, and Mike Smith as Bubbles as they try to get along after all these years. They’re also doing their best to stay out of jail, but you can probably guess how that will turn out.
