The Definitive War Movies: 10-1

2 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here we are, at the top of the mountain. We’ve had plenty from every war imaginable, some supportive of war efforts, some not. But the more interesting war films really focus on the people; the internal struggles those men and women have about what they are doing. Whether made in America, Germany, the United Kingdom, or anywhere else, war is not just a battle between good and evil. It’s a life and death struggle between opposing sides that may not be that different. The movies at the top of this list may be subtle or straightforward, but each of them is a clear snapshot that lets audiences see what it means to fight, so they don’t have to.

Classe tous risques DVD – Philip French on Claude Sautet's pitch-perfect directorial debut

22 March 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

(Claude Sautet, 1960; BFI, 12)

Le roman policier and le film policier (now widely known by the reverse slang or verlan term "polar") have been staples of French popular culture for a century. Its soundtrack crackling with underworld argot, its air thick with smoke from Gauloises, its morality pulsating with romantic cynicism, the genre's golden age in the cinema was roughly between 1955 and the mid-70s. That's from the release of Rififi (the 1955 gangster movie directed by blacklisted American exile Jules Dassin, a movie much indebted to John Huston's 1950 The Asphalt Jungle) to the death in 1973 of Jean-Pierre Melville, the Americanophile cineaste and creator of definitive gangster flicks. These two decades encompass the classic polars of Jacques Becker, the best films of Lino Ventura (the French Bogart), the nouvelle vague (informally launched by a Louis Malle policier, Lift to the Scaffold, starring Ventura), and Godard's subversion of the genre in Breathless. »

Blu-ray Review - Classe Tous Risques (1960)

23 February 2014 11:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Classe Tous Risques, 1960.

Directed by Claude Sautet.

Starring Lino Ventura, Sandra Milo, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Marcel Dalio and Michel Ardan.

Synopsis:

On the run with two small children, how long can criminal Abel Davos outrun those in pursuit and his destiny?

The same year cinema was left Breathless by Jean-Luc Godard's revolutionary tour de force, its star Jean-Paul Belmondo found himself yet again on the wrong side of the law in Claude Sautet's Classe Tous Risques; this time swapping the pursuit of Jean Seberg for Sandra Milo.

Sautet’s Classe Tous Risques' ageing protagonist features shades of Jean Gabin and Roger Duchesne in Jacque Becker's Pas au Grisbi and Jean-Pierre Melville’s Bob le Flambeur - two seminal French gangster films of the 1950s.

Alongside Francois Truffaut who was made to look decidedly human in 1960 following his seminal 1959 film Les Quatre Cents Coups (The 400 Blows), Classe Tous Risques »
