      Melville's latest film, doesn't measure up to his best works such as 'Le Doulos', 'Le Samouraï' and 'Le cercle rouge', but in my opinion his plot of police and thieves is so stark that I enjoy every minute of his mise-en-scène. [Full review in Spanish]

      Melville concerns himself with very complex themes in Un Flic while keeping the narrative mostly at the surface.

      The film seems to come apart... Still, there remains that stunning first sequence, and enough richness of style and theme to make Un Flic a characteristic if not the quintessential [Jean-Pierre] Melville film.

      Jean-Pierre Melville's last film, Un Flic / A Cop (1972), is a late noir classic...

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

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jun 27, 2013

      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.

      A fitting final act for noir master Jean-Pierre Melville ...

      Chilling perfection is Melville's epitath

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

      Full Review | Oct 18, 2008

      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.

      A murky disappointment.

      Full Review | Aug 1, 2007

      Plays beautifully with all [Melville's] trademark silence, grim faces, and gloomy colors.

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

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | May 9, 2005

      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.

      Full Review | Sep 16, 2003

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

      [A] very interesting piece of genre cinema.
