Max and the Junkmen Reviews
"Max and the Junkmen" is a compelling movie that moves at its own idiosyncratic rhythm. At the same time, its deliberate pace does allow for suspense to build nicely towards the film's climax. In fact, it is a rather deceptive movie in that it is something of a reverse caper. Consumed by his obsession to catch criminals, not prevent crime, Max acts like a criminal, not by planting evidence or something similar. He is running a long con by making the mark think they are making the decisions when in fact he is pulling all of the strings. In its own topsy turvy way, the movie does not side with its police protagonist but with the gang who only seem dangerous to themselves. This is in a world where most of the characters have military experience in colonial wars.
Excellent Cinenmatography, Action, Acting & Music i love this 70's French Movies
Un polar epatant avec une mention speciale pour Michel Piccoli qui incarne de facon effrayante un flic desabuse, aigri, qui perd toute sensibilite humaine pour ne penser qu'a manipuler une affaire afin de redorer sa vie morne.
Il retrouvera la compassion et la raison dans les bras de la magnifique Romy.
