Films of Aberration, Obsession, and Reality
A non fiction book by Thomas D Clagett
This study of Friedkin's films, which is based on nearly 100 interviews with the director and his colleagues, pays particular attention to the evolution of his cinematic style and choice of subject material. New to the second edition, in addition to many small changes and updates of the book's existing material, are three chapters covering the last five years of Friedkin's work - which includes the much-publicized re-release of his director's cut of The Exorcist.
