Part of the Program: Tuesday Nights at the Movies
Feral Alain Delon is an enigmatic and taciturn hit man who lives by his own austere code of ethics. He becomes dangerously enmeshed with an exotic nightclub singer in director Jean-Pierre Melville’s stylish psychological crime thriller soaked in rain, trench coats, and fedoras. This hugely influential color neo-noir deconstructs the imagery of hardboiled Hollywood into a poetic and lucid dream often imitated but never duplicated. In French with English subtitles.
