Though not among Melville's classics, "Un Flic" is a pleasure to experience.

There's a distinct vein of misanthropic defeat coursing in this film that's encoded into empty gestures and portrayals of people who appear to only be going through the motions.

Delon and Crenna paint an idealized portrait of masculine camaraderie, one that's exposed at the end of Melville's bracing last testament as a soul-shattering illusion.

Engaging and entertaining %u2026 primarily a heist movie with noirish elements; the characters are all flawed

Everything that has come to be known as "Melville" exists in some form throughout the film's 98 minutes. The flaws present are those of the greatest auteurs' autumnal works.

Fragile beauty Deneuve gets little more than a walk-on as the woman carrying on with both men.

A bitter meditation on disenchantment and defeat, as glacial and hermetic as Deneuve's face.

Mr. Melville's obsession with technical information is sometimes taken to lengths that border on the crazy.

Although ill, Melville still managed a dark edge and a sense of camaraderie among villains and cops in his last take on his preferred genre, the American thriller.

It's a darkly atmospheric film noir with Melville linking his characters to the silent landscape around them.
