Still image from the film The General
The General is based on the story  of Martin Cahill, a notorious Dublin gangster who led a series of daring robberies that stunned Ireland in the 1980s. The film introduces Brendan Gleeson as Cahill and reunites John Boorman with his Deliverance star Jon Voight, who plays the Irish policeman determined to bring Cahill down. Despite being the country’s most wanted man, he brazenly eluded capture, thumbing his nose at the police and the IRA. Boorman won the Best Director Prize at the Cannes Film Festival  for The General. (35mm Presentation)
