07.16.06Netflix Melville's last film... I'd say it's good except for a terribly unconvincing miniature train and helicoptor scene that he unfortunately cuts back to A LOT. If he got a real helicoptor and a real train it would be great, especially considering it's the basis for one of his ultra-complete crime scenes where we see every little detail in what happens. I never thought I'd be interested enough to watch a guy comb his hair twice in a row but I was. And yet for as deliberate as that whole sequence was paced, toward the end there's some much faster cutting that feels really frantic and energized... oh and you know what? Catherine Deneuve was freakin HOT. I never quite saw what others saw in Jeanne Moreau but hot damn! Catherine Deneuve! She's like the best parts of Grace Kelly mixed with the best parts of Gwyneth Paltrow... and French. Has to be one of the most stunningly beautiful women ever put on film... has to be.

So, I should probably talk more about this movie but... I'm tired.
