Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville
1972, in French with English subtitles
98 minutesReleased in the U.S. as Dirty Money, Melville’s final film features Alain Delon as a burned-out police detective, Richard Crenna as a nightclub owner and bank robber, and Catherine Deneuve as the icy woman they both love.The film showcases two trademark heists, the first a near wordless bank job on a deserted, seaside street; and a nerve-wracking, 20-minute drug snatch done via helicopter-to-train transfer — and back again.
