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.

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

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

The Gritty Seventies. Before cinema went to !!, Nicholson, Pacino, DeNiro, Hackman, Scorsese, Altman, Lumet, Ca##avettes etc. all in their prime :wow:.
Pacino's career starter, a gritty dramatic look at drug abuse in the city.
[code]This movie is a stark portrayal of life among a group of heroin addicts who hang out in "Needle Park" in New York City[/code]
[code]A drop-out from upper-cla## America picks up work along the way on oil-rigs when his life isn't spent in a squalid succession of bars[/code]
[code]Two Navy men are ordered to bring a young offender to prison but decide to show him one last good time along the way.[/code]
[code]A small-time hood struggles to succeed on the "mean streets" of Little Italy.[/code]
[code]Dramatization of the Starkweather-Fugate k#lling spree of the 1950's[/code]
[code]A proud strip club owner is forced to come to terms with himself as a man, when his gambling addiction gets him in hot water with the mob[/code]
[code]Harold, a prosperous English gangster, is about to close a lucrative new deal when b0mbs start showing up in very inconvenient places[/code]

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.
Forgotten by who exactly?...
"Ran" is Cinema at it's highest levels.

Here is some more Surreal work:
Cla##ic Robert Altman, highly recommended, it puts Black Swan to shame.
[code]Pinky is an awkward young teen who starts work at a spa in the CA. Desert. She becomes overly attached to fellow spa attendant, Millie when she becomes Millie's roommate.[/code]
Gotta love Kafka:
[code]An una##uming office worker is arrested and stands trial, but he is never made aware of his charges.[/code]
[code]A police sergeant is called to an island village in search of a missing girl whom the locals claim never existed.[/code]
[code]A story about the disappearance of several Appleyard College students, and a teacher, from Hanging Rock.[/code]
Scorsese's best comedy:
[code]n ordinary word processor has the worst night of his life after he agrees to visit a girl in Soho whom he met that evening at a coffee shop.[/code]
Two necessary Bunuel:
[code]A surreal, virtually plotless series of dreams centered around six middle-cla## people and their consistently interrupted attempts to have a meal together.[/code]
[code]A frigid young housewife decides to spend her midweek afternoons as a prostitute.[/code]
[code]A young woman left her family for an unspecified reason. The husband determines to find out the truth and starts following his wife[/code]
