Back in the seventies, movies didn't open on 4,000 screens the first day of a film.

Sorcerer was William Friedkin’s follow up to The Exorcist. The film suffered from a bad rap for many years simply because it received negative reviews in 1977.
It's funny how the MPAA works. When William Friedkin made The Exorcist back in the early 70's, it went through and got the R even with its nuclear obscenities, the crucifix scene, and many other intense moments.
Most people know William Friedkin as the director of The Exorcist, and for winning the Best Picture and Best Director prizes for The French Connection.
