French Connection II
- 1h 54min
- Directed by: John Frankenheimer
- Cast: Gene Hackman, Fernando Rey, Bernard Fresson
The sequel to Friedkin's grungy original sees Popeye (Hackman) very much out of water hunting Rey's drug kingpin in Marseilles, with the reluctant help of local cop Barthélémy (Fresson). Notable for its harrowing second act in which Popeye is forcibly addicted to heroin and then rescued and made to go cold turkey, and for its final chase scene.
