Le Cercle Rouge


Dir. Jean-Pierre Melville (1970).
Directed by the high-priest of tough-guy mysticism, buddy-manhunt-caper flick pivots on a neat series of reversals; despite the presence of Euro stars Alain Delon and Yves Montand, the tone is less preening than existential—a series of rituals performed by a cast of solitary men in trench coats.
