I don't know if he could love someone, for instance the last time he meets up with Jane he doesn't show any genuine affection. The ending was him paying his dues with some morality meaning and respect, and maybe subconsciously there was nothing to fulfill his life and wanted out since it seemed he had nothing to live for.

I loved the movie, some really nice direction camera shots when hes walking out the metro for the first time. When you film someone walking for long period of times with practically minimum suspense you've done something right. The dialogue was on point. The overall cool style was there and definitely was laid back film.

Thanks again for the enjoyable recommendation. Got any more like these?

As i am watching Le Cercle Rouge, Alain Delon's character reminds me of Ron Swanson but a gangster type.

Yea Le Cercle Rouge and Bob Le Flambeur are too other great ones. He was a perfectionist as shown early on, he took his job seriously and didn't indulge in personal pleasures. The end was a balance between his strict code of samurai honor, and his affection for the woman in the club, he broke his code a bit and had to commit Seppuku (ancient samurai $uicide) by having the police k!ll him, remember the next job was for him to k!ll the woman, he took the money (and gave it away) but didn't want to k!ll her so had himself done in. In essence the character change here was him breaking that code and using his feelings and heart, something unexpected from the first few acts of the film.

Yeah, i knew she was on the list. Thanks for clearing the rest up. But i just read Seppuku is a stomach-cutting $uicide where by lungs and heart get cut off last to keep that individual alive and in pain as long as possible.

You think it was affection rather than respect/loyalty for not ratting him out?

I hated Gerry (Which i get it).

at Elephant, too. I did read something interesting by the cover choice and that scene, though.

It was a bit of both, the noir aspect of keeping your mouth shut and respecting his job, and the romantic aspect too which was very subtle and not necessary for any over the top love scenes.

It is a contemporary form of seppuku the entire film is a contemporary french samurai story so obviously no swords, they can still commit $uicide through an outside party.

The Gritty Seventies. Before cinema went to ####, Nicholson, Pacino, DeNiro, Hackman, Scorsese, Altman, Lumet, Cassavettes etc. all in their prime :wow:.

Pacino's career starter, a gritty dramatic look at drug abuse in the city.

Fantastic Thread for the people who are just starting to broaden their horizons and see Film as an artform, and not just mindless entertainment... And are looking for help in finding the films they need to see...

I'd love to contribute, but I'm not sure I have the energy...

But yeah, if you're just browsing this thread and are not sure... Take the leap.

Here is some more Surreal work:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073540/

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088680/
Two necessary Bunuel:

Yea, I'll drop some later, mostly dark comedies if that is your thing.

Check out Scorsese's After Hours, funny, dark, surreal, underrated.
