My first Jean-Pierre Melville film is this absolute powerhouse. No cinemas, no problem. As the world is on lockdown I figured it’d be a great opportunity to finally start watching Melville’s filmography. One that has alluded me for no reason other than my amateurish antics and lack of initiative. Now however, with all this free time, there is no excuse.
A stylish crime noir film that helped commence the French New Wave can boast a compelling narrative and engaging characters. Topped off by a unique, unconventional ending that really cemented this film among the best of the heist film sub-genre. Loved it.
