Sorcerer

Sorcerer ★★★★½

An impressive revision of a classic, and an excellent film in its own right. Sorcerer is a little bit broader than The Wages of Fear; the opening 25 minutes sets this up with blisteringly fast character introductions, and it ends up making the characters feel more like cyphers. This is a mostly fine trade off for an increased sense of delirium (although Sorcerer's Palestinian character gets pretty short shrift if you ask me; we're really making him friends with a nazi vet huh? 🤢). But yeah uhhhh that bridge scene? The ending trek through the desert? The concluding moment of cruelty? All fantastic stuff! I wish The Wages of Fear got a remake from a talented director every decade, but I can settle with this.
