William Friedkin: The Friedkin Connection

Hosted by

book.jpgTo Oscar-winning director William Friedkin, sound and picture are equally important, and anyone who has seen The French Connection, The Exorcist, Cruising or To Live and Die in LA knows that the soundscape is just as crucial to the tone and narrative as what you see on screen. The soundtracks to Friedkin's films always tend to mix music genres in innovative and distinctive ways, like the score for Cruising, which moves from Willy DeVille to The Germs to Luigi Boccherini. Friedkin talks about his meticulous approach to sound and score, plus, some surprising anecdotes from his new memoir, The Friedkin Connection.
