France | 1972 | Jean-Pierre Melville
Catherine Deneuve, Alain Delon, and Richard Crenna star in the final film by crime-movie master Jean-Pierre Melville (Le Samourai, Army of Shadows). It’s a typically Melvillian account of friendship and betrayal among a cop, a shady nightclub owner, and the beautiful woman involved with both of them. “High priest of tough-guy mysticism and master of the attitudinous gangster thriller, Melville not only anticipated the French new wave but served as a model for the neo new wave of Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino and Wong Kar-wai.” – J. Hoberman.
