The Exorcist - Director's Cut

The Exorcist
  • 1973
  • US
  • 132 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: William Friedkin
  • Cast: Max von Sydow, Ellen Burstyn, Linda Blair

Writer William Peter Blatty always griped that in excising twenty minutes from The Exorcist, Friedkin removed its moral centre and obscured its theological message. To Blatty's horror, some people thought the Devil won. Twenty seven years later, Friedkin has reinstated eleven minutes of footage, and the re-editing job is done so lovingly that fans are unlikely to feel cynically exploited. Even so, Friedkin's cuts have mostly been vindicated by this newrelease ­ it now feels too long, while the infamous 'spider walk' scene merely adds a cheap and redundant shock.

Murray (Gleeson), an ex-fisherman, is dismayed that fishing quotas have demoralised his Newfoundland community, so he conceives a Zany Scheme to attract a petrochemical plant to the town. Charming small-town comedy in the Ealing tradition, with Gleeson in his element as the scheming hustler; odd, though, that the environmental consequences are completely uncommented upon.

The story of two sisters in 60s Nigeria, Olanna (Newton) and Kainene (Rose), attempting to assert their independence as their nation seeks to do the same. The adaptation of Adichie's novel looks beautiful but is crippled by Bandele's use of archival footage to explain the situation, which kills the narrative flow and gives the story a soap-ish quality.
