Sorcerer (1977)

Here's a favorite of mine, Sorcerer. It's William Friedkin's 1977 remake of Henri-Georges Clouzot's 1953 film The Wages of Fear.

Roy Scheider (who portrays a low level American criminal) leads an international cast of characters each with their own deadly, grievous reasons to have relocated to a small town in a rather hostile South American country. But a chance for an extraction anywhere else is presented when financial reward is offered as compensation for those driving truckloads of ancient nitroglycerin through thick jungles and threatening mountains. It's a wild ride, best seen on the big screen and worthy of a viewing.
