Un Flic ★★★

Still recovering from THAT movie

Films like Le Samourai showed Melville was what would many will call "an auteur". He has a style of its own, that style will either make it or break it for everyone.

So what's that style, you may be asking? Well, there's an almost 20 mins greatly choreographed heist scene that has almost no dialogue and zero music. The complete opposite from what you will expect from a heist or suspended movie at the moment, this gives a sense of realism.

All performances are as well as quite, but very good. Seeing often bad guy Alain DeLeon playing for the good guys was really nice.

All in all, while it's very quite nature didn't align with my more bombastic and kinetic taste, this is still a nice and stylistic suspense/cop movie.
