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 [spoiler - register to view]

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 [spoiler - register to view]

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 [spoiler - register to view] the entire film is a contemporary french samurai story so obviously no swords, they can still [spoiler - register to view].

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.

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

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