(ca) wrote: No problems with the acting, production values were fine, the plot was entertaining enough ... but ... it just didn't quite come together as it should and in the end I really wasn't too bothered about any of the characters.From the extras on the DVD we understand that all the characters have a backstory and that there are differences in the relationships and loyalties within the group but we don't really get to know that from the film itself. Well, apart from occasional, and distracting, short scenes with Chubby's (Paul Nicholls) wife.A pity really - a good idea and some fine talent probably let down by lack of budget and time to smooth out the rough edges and give more room to the individual character stories.One final thought ... I really hope that Paul Nicholls was in a fat suit for this role and the huge gut he had for this film wasn't all him!

(ca) wrote: 8.3/10 Jean-Pierre Melville is yet another filmmaker whose work I am just not discovering. He is a French filmmaker, but you probably already knew that by his name. You might also know that many of cinema's great masters came from France. Coincidence? I think not. Perhaps it is the stylistics of a French film that appeals to so many, me included. I love the works of Jacques Tati, to site one, and so many others. The music works...the visual presentation is usually appealing in its own way. I suppose that Melville, this fascinating new discovery of mine, has his own style and even his own legacy. Some consider him a master, and in time, I might feel the same about this man. "Le Doulos", one of his most acclaimed and universally popular films, is a very deep, very clever, and very entertaining French noir. It tells its story in a believable and somewhat even simplistic way, yet it still leaves a lot to be desired in future thinking sessions. One could analyze the film as a great artistic achievement, because with all due respect, that is what it is. I don't think it's a perfect film, and from what I've heard, I'm not alone in saying that, but it's wonderful nonetheless, and I'd certainly revisit it just to get that good ol' feeling of sheer entertainment and storytelling combined. The premise is simple: a burglar named Maurice (Serge Reggiani) is released from prison, and the first thing he does is make a trip to a friend's house, only to shoot the poor fellow dead, and steal his treasures and jewels (presumably from a previous heist of some sort). After this, Maurice is left thirst for more, more, and more money and riches. He then visits an old friend, Silien (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and shares his plans for the future. He tells Silien of a heist on an old, rich man's estate; which he intends to carry out soon. The trouble here is that Silien is, supposedly, an informant for the police. Maurice could have easily just given him information that could put his life in jeopardy, and land his ass back in jail. He doesn't know it yet, but he will become aware of it soon enough. And when he does, one question remains to be answered: who to trust? Maurice fears that Silien has ratted him out to his friend's that are the police. A lot of it is paranoia, but then again, maybe not. I'll stop there; I shouldn't spoil too much of the film. Good or not, a film should be seen in order for one to fully understand it in terms of its story. I can tell you as much as I can about my opinion, but this is such a good movie, that I wouldn't dare give out too much, in terms of spoilers. I guess one thing that I liked a lot about the film, aside from how it told its brilliant story of deception and manipulation, was the fact that these themes revolved around men in particular. Women have these troubles too; but in "Le Doulos", the women exist as complications to each problem. They could be keeping secrets from certain characters; and information that each one, respectively, needs. The film doesn't have a hero and it doesn't have a villain. You could call each of the two leads anti-heroes, and you might be right; one is greedy, one just wants to do the right thing. But is a lie a crime? The film asks this question among others, and it remains to be answered (in a strict sense). But some questions are not meant to be answered. I liked "Le Doulos" because it left me thinking; no, it HAD me thinking. It had be consistently hooked and interested in its plot, its characters, and the techniques that Melville used to craft the film. I don't watch too many noire films, which may be a cinematic sin; I must watch more. This is not an introduction, I have seen others from the genre, but alas, not enough. This film is recommended if you know what to expect out of most 60's-style noire films, and if you like a good thriller tale, tightly woven and told with depth and detail, but little empathy for its characters, then you might find the film slightly fascinating. It can be slow at times, but I've come to expect that out of films not from my time; but time does not matter. "Le Doulos" has successfully defeated such a great enemy as that.

(fr) wrote: Great locales, average performances, sub-par screenplay (especially the last 30-40 minutes). The film is basically "Cloverfield meets the apocalypse". Underwhelming compared to similar flicks like 'Spring' and 'Afflicted'.
