Thanks for sharing - I thought it was an interview with Caan, but that reads more like a short article  Huh

This is just a short extract of rather long and quite interesting three part conversation with Caan. Not an interview in the sense of questions and answers, but more like an article describing the encounter the author had with Caan, quoting him for the most interesting things he told him.

Did anyone else pick up a copy of the most recent issue?

In addition to Mike's short PG&BTK article, a highlight for me was the extensive interview with Friedkin on "Sorcerer" to coincide with the new North American BD. It's crazy how all that alternative footage that made itself into the European cut (while chopping out and re-ordering other stuff in the original cut) was never sanctioned by Friedkin, yet somehow editors/producers/distributors saw fit to include it. I've never seen the European version (and according to the interview, neither has Friedkin and nor does he care to), but there must be an interesting back story to this one... much like a Peckinpah film really  Smiley

Yeah, it's a fantastic film.
Oh, and it has also been written by Walon Green...

I have it.  It's great!   I wish the article by Mike Siegel were longer (it's good, though), but with the Friedkin-Sorcerer, Great Escape, Nancy Kwan and Wicker Man articles added, it's a worthwhile purchase.  (And, ahem, I can't get that photo of Ingrid Pitt out of my head!)

SORCERER: One of my favorites. I made a 'fan cut' years ago, 132 minutes, incl. the European extra footage (I only had German dubbed). It includes a great scene taken from Clouzot's film: Rabal wants to slow down on a bumpy road, Scheider wants to speed up...

A friend of mine told Friedkin about my extended cut and he seemed interested. Beyond that, I don't know. The US cut was his Director's Cut so I suppose he just didn't care and of course the 90 min. version is a bit painful to watch knowing what is missing, although it has some elegant dissolves and use of TANGERNIE's music. I can't get enough of the film, we'd need the European cut as HD then we could make our HD 'fan cut' Smiley

My article was supposed just to announce the GARCIA Blu-ray, I extended it slightly thanks to Lee & Dave giving it more space. It wasn't meant as a 'real' piece about the film. Maybe one day another Peckinpah 10-page Film in Focus Smiley
