UN FLIC (1972)

 

CLICK THE POSTER TO BUY THIS GOOD SHIT FROM AMAZON

 

Jean-Pierre Melville called it quits after UN FLIC (released here in the states as DIRTY MONEY). He was pretty ill when he banged this one out and the old guy just didn’t have a lot left in the tank. UN FLIC is usually at the bottom of the Melville list when it comes to quality, but I have always dug it. It’s flawed (Delon as a cop and Crenna as the villain?)but still is better than most directors at the top of their game. The only scene Melville really liked in the film was the bank robbery which may explain why its the only thing we see in the trailer.

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
