This guy deserves a thread ... especially since not too many of his films have their own thread.

I'll try as best as possible to remember the ratings I gave his movies, some of which I saw a while ago

Un Flic/A Cop 7/10
Deux hommes dans Manhattan/Two Men in Manhattan 8/10
Le Doulos/The Finger Man 8/10
Bob Le Flambeur/The Gambler 8.5/10
Le deuxième souffle/Second Breath 8.5/10
L'armée des ombres/Army of Shadows 8.5/10
Le Samourai 9/10
Le Cercle Rouge/The Red Circle 9/10

So far I only recall seeing Le Samourai (9/10), The Red Circle and Army of Shadows (both 8/10). I'd been meaning to watch more of his work but never got around to it.

It's my intent to watch every Melville movie I can ... I've seen 8 of his movies and only one lower than 8/10 that's pretty damn good  Afro

The one Melville I've been waiting to see (because it is not generally available with Eng. subs) is now available. But for how long? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sz9qnFnM5tI

I got the LE CERCLE ROUGE Criterion DVD from Amazon. This disc usually costs a zillion bucks, but I finally found a guy on Amazon selling a used copy for $30 plus shipping  Smiley One of the all-time great heist movies

Maybe I should have; I actually did not really pay attention. But looking at Amazon now, I see that the cheapest used BRD is more than $60. So I am happy with my DVD.  Smiley

Except that I must have the DVD kicking around my place; I haven't really paid attention to it since I got my BD copy. But if I'd known you wanted the DVD, I could have given you mine! Sad

A shame; I appreciate it.

Why not try selling your DVD on Amazon or eBay? This title is fetching high prices; both the Criterion DVD and BRD are out of print. You have lots of discs, you can try selling them and make back some money to fuel your movie habit  Wink You can make more than 30 dollars for the DVD or more than 60 dollars for the BRD.
