I didn't get a chance to revisit this great film in October like usual. So I'll take the opportunity of Oscars Month to throw it on. Interesting though, like turning a knob I'm viewing it slightly differently than I normally do. In October it's always about noticing how Friedkin creates fear and suspense. The great performances by the actors and actresses who made one of the scariest films of all-time. Now I'm watching it from a more technical point of view.
