Critic Reviews for Le Doulos
As good as Melville's setups are, the joys of the movie keep returning to Belmondo, then and now the king of effortless cool.
Even back in 1962, Melville made the usual suspects feel new by wrapping them in gorgeous desolation.
A slippery, gripping cops-and-robbers thriller, full of twists and turns and ending with a tragicomic shootout you'll never forget.
Audience Reviews for Le Doulos
Terrific 'stylized' French noir! (Does anyone else think that Serge Reggiani looks like Mr. Bean?)
easily one of the most gripping and fulfilling films i have ever seen. the film has enough twists to fill a lifetime, shifting the direction of the characters so often to keep one glued to the story but no too often so as to confuse. a perfect blend of mystery and suspense with noir like lighting and style. one of the best crime dramas ever produced.
a fantastic heist film and the best melville i've seen to date. it's right up there with rififi and the asphalt jungle in my book. jean paul belmondo is tres cool and i never could tell which way it would turn. in beautiful black & white, simply stunning
