The French Connection (46:45) This episode is rated R for some naughty words.
Popeye’s here! We wrap up the year with the action-packed Gene Hackman cop thriller. Chasing foreign smack peddlers in the dead of winter and putting the public at risk makes for a complex flick. Hear us! Also, we spend about 5 minutes at the end looking back at our 46 T100P flicks from 2014 and look ahead to 2015’s slate. And order yourself some Sparkplug Coffee!
CORRECTION: Traffic was released in 2000, so it came out 29 years after The French Connection, not 19 years.
