Le Fanfaron (1962) I was curious to watch it with Trintignant dubbing himself, but no big affair. His italian voice (Paolo Ferrari, a very good actor always relegated to character acting) is much better. The roman accent of Gassman is part of his character (and of most of the italian comedy characters) and can't be translated into any other language. Still I am always fascinated by this great movie.

Snatch (2000) A Tarantino rip-off, with some  interesting editing trick but cartoon characters, even more artificial than their models. 6/10

In the commentary Guy Ritchie states that the editor, Jon Harris, saved the picture since Ritchie didn't think there was much to what he shot.

What would you give it?

Of course, I didn't hear any commentary. Actually I saw a dubbed copy.

Nothing of major interest except for the editing information and the scene where Brad Pitt is being introduced is him taking a shit behind the car. Also, I have no idea on a dubbed version would sound when it came to Brad Pitt's character's accent.

La Nuit Des Espions (a.k.a. Double Agents; Night Encounter) (1959)

The idea was not bad for a movie made on a budget where the only cost was the film. But the story doesn't hold the interest for 80' and you end up not caring who is who. 3/10

Er ist wieder da (2015) The idea was far from original, but it had to be put in images sooner or later. The problem is that the movie hangs between comedy and drama, between politically correct and uncorrect. I think a politically uncorrect comedy would have suited the subject better, but Teutschland and comedy do not go together well. 8/10 though.

Collateral (2004) As it plays at night somebody dubbed it noir, but it is the usual action movie with absurd premises (the killer buffoon who tries his best to get caught, like going around with the same taxi driver, the same identifiable taxi with a corpse in the trunk and doing interminable pseudo-deep reflections and dialogues which allow the movie to run 2h instead of 90'). Still it has good scenes and gets 7/10.

From the way it read, I thought it was gonna be a 5/10 score. Ripping this directly off the wikipedia page for Neo-Noir:

Robert Arnett states that "Neo-noir has become so amorphous as a genre/movement, any film featuring a detective or crime qualifies."

Seems like the term 'neo-noir' is just a catch all.

Not only a catch all but a marketing tool. It's cool to be noir.

For me the real Neo Noirs are the ones that strongly embrace the visual stylistics of Noir, the shadows, the Dutch angles, depth of field, high and low angles, etc., etc. along with a good noir-ish plot. So far from 1960 to the present I have about 100 films that I've seen that I consider Neo Noir, the rest are just Crime films. I thought Collateral had sufficient enough style to be included, I think I gave it a 7/10 also.

Inferno (2016) It simplifies the novel and makes it more logical. Usual timewaster. 6/10

The Shuttered Room (1967) Straw Dogs plus a horror-like moronic tag which helps making it be considered in the wrong genre. But without the horror part this is much better than Peckinpah's minor movie: the use of landscape and direction are first-rate and so the pace of the narrative. Oliver Reed is a convinging thug and the jazzy OST pleasing. 7/10

American Ultra (2015) Crappy b action movie. If you jump the dialogues you have 20 minutes of good action scenes with a couple of original, I presume, turns. 5/10
