Army of Shadows
Dir. Jean-Pierre Melville (1969). Jean-Pierre Melville fully achieved his notion of the sublime by employing the methodical suspense, cosmic fatalism, and grim solitude of his gangster films to his own experience in the French resistance. Army of Shadows is rigorously abstract; only when Melville's vision reaches its chilling conclusion is it apparent that the title is absolutely literal.
