'The Connection' ('La French'): Toronto Review
The vast series of drug-smuggling operations loosely referred to as "The French Connection," spanning multiple continents and with roots as far back as the Thirties, surely holds enough drama for a dozen crime films that never overlap. So moviegoers should be far from surprised to find no mention of the New York cop who inspired Gene Hackman 's "Popeye" Doyle in Cedric Jimenez 's The Connection , a Gallic take on the topic that doesn't even start its narrative until years after William Friedkin 's The French Connection hit cinemas.
