While Jordan's repeated freeze-frames try a little too hard for nonchalance, the overall cocktail of Gallic insouciance and American film noir grit delivers such relaxant properties you forgive a few foibles.
Mr. Jordan has lovingly recreated much of what glittered in the hard French thrillers that once starred Delon and Belmondo, and provided a superbly customized vehicle for the salty charms of ashtray-voiced Nick Nolte.
Allows cinematographer Chris Menges to work at his artful best, but in the end it seems as if Jordan has turned out a glamorized version of the kind of movies that were terrific partly because they were made on the cheap.
