06.30.06DVD Next up is this movie where Alain Delon plays a hitman who is really really badass. Again, Melville's pacing is really deliberate, covering practically every detail that goes on, spending like an hour with one interrogation. It's not a bad kind of slow though... and Delon's silent intensity kept me interested. I think there's a lot more going on here in terms of why both of these movies, although they seem slow at the time, really grip the hell out of me. A lot of Melville's staging and composition are amazingly efficient... awesome movies. For sheer Delon hitman badass-ness though I think Tony Arzenta still wins out, but the two together make a really interesting pair.

Well I had a midnight movie all picked out but I don't think it counts if I start it at 3:30am. Guess it'll have to carry over to tomorrow's festivities: noir night.
