Le Cercle Rouge

French master of cool Jean-Pierre Melville (Le Samourai, Bob Le Flambeur) came up with this icy criminal roundelay shortly before his death in 1972. Euro superstars Alain Delon, Gian Maria Volante and Yves Montand star as a trio of criminals trying to pull off a flawless, high-tech jewel heist. Melville knows the world of film noir like the back of his hand, and this late entry points out an interesting new direction for the genre: the gangster as icy pop icon. Slow, frigidly cool and extremely methodical, this one is a must for students of stylish gangster cool. 140 minutes
