William Friedkin, director of the 1973 classic film "The Exorcist," is dealing with the devil again.Friedkin's hourlong documentary "The Devil and Father Amorth" recalls perhaps the world's most famous exorcist, Italian priest Gabriele Amorth, who died in 2016 at the age of 91 .Friedkin struck up a friendship with Amorth, a disarmingly jovial man despite his serious work.On May 1, 2016, about four months before he died, Amorth allowed Friedkin to watch an exorcism of a 46-year-old Italian woman, on condition that he did it without a crew, used only a small camera and did not interfere with the rite.The footage shows the woman being held down by Amorth's assistants.Friedkin said he has long had an affinity with Christianity.
