France—1962—directed by Jean-Pierre Melville)

From the director of the great Army of Shadows comes this newly restored, rarely-shown masterwork that follows the unpredictable fates of two criminals – Jean-Paul Belmondo and Serge Reggiani – as they slink through the wet streets of Paris with their raincoats, pistols and fedoras at the ready. But could one of them be the doulos (the “squealer” in underworld slang)? And if so, who and why? Featuring one of the most breathtaking shots in all of Melville’s work (an eight-minute police grilling done in a single, 360° pan), The New York Times’ Manohla Dargis wrote that “Melville’s brutal and subtly brilliant policier Le Doulos underscores why the French put the name to film noir. The camera and the actors move in a silent conspiracy, revealing more about the true nature of a man far in advance of any line of dialogue. This new 35mm print makes it even easier to swoon into its darkness.” In French with English subtitles. (108 min.)
