Willard Straight Theatre
1970 > France/Italy > Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville
With Alain Delon, Gian Maria Volonte, Yves Montand
Melville took what he wanted from potboilers: the crooked moral universe, the honor of men, the thick plots of boozy desperation. Add to that what can only be called coolness, a formal, distant aesthetic that elevates the cop-robber chase and the heist to questions of free will, and you have one of the true classics of modernist film noir.
