    The Exorcist

    ★★★★

    I hadn't watched this fully until now, only having seen clips of the various exorcism sequences. So in my head I'd filled in the gaps in such a way that I was really caught off guard by this film's structure and pacing.

    This is moreso a character drama than a horror film, being caught between the era…
