I started watching this movie 2 days ago having bought in Paris last month (and read) the two first Simonin novels of the "grisbi" trilogy of which this is the third part
Okay, there's this, and Touchez pas au grisbi . . . what's the other "grisbi" book/movie?

Betrayed/ aka When Strangers Marry (1944) - 6/10. New bride Kim Hunter thinks hubby Dean Jagger is acting strangely--can he be the Silk Stocking Murderer the police are looking for? Good thing she's got her ex-beau's shoulder to cry on (that shoulder was played by "Bob" Mitchum, as the film's poster has it). Bob is such an understanding, wonderful guy, could Kim have married the wrong man? Wow, there sure were a lot of who-did-I-marry? films in the 40s. This is Monogram's appropriately down-market entry. I guess it served to propel Mitchum to better things; it also featured Neil Hamilton as a determined homicide detective, no doubt working his way up to police commissioner! And look for the unintentionally funny cameo by Rhonda Fleming at the end.

Crack-up (1946) 5/10. A war veteran thinks he's been in a train wreck that never occurred--is he cracking up, or being manipulated by a ring of art forgers? I'll bet you'll never guess. Claire Trevor is the girlfriend, Herbert Marshall the man from Scotland Yard, and Ray Collins is the Prince of Darkness. This could have been a pretty decent film except for one thing: the lead was filled by Pat O'Brien. This blow-hard is pretty hard to take, and it wasn't long before I was rooting for the bad guys. I never thought anyone could make George Raft look good by comparison, but O'Brien did it.

A Stolen Life (1946) - 8/10. In which Bette Davis plays twins. The good twin strikes up a friendship and then a romance with Glenn Ford (somewhat more appealing here than usual). The bad twin thinks her sister is on to a good thing and beats her time. After the wedding everyone realizes a mistake's been made but there's no going back. Or is there? When the good twin sees her chance to steal her sister's life she does. But how can a good girl suddenly act bad convincingly? This hokey woman's picture is rather compelling, and made all the more so by an amazing performance by Dane Clark as a bohemian artist who never has a kind word for anyone. Walter Brennan is along also as (wait for it) a cranky old coot. Warners has dumped this classic A picture in their archive program. Go figure.

Les tontons flingueurs (1963)
The best feature is the endless string of witticisms delivered dead-pan from Ventura and a host of French character actors (No doubt I would enjoy this movie more if I were fluent in French).

Good call. I would even say: the point of the movie is Audiard's dialogues. Most lines of this movie are now part of the french mainstream culture. I'm pretty sure a translation cannot give you more than 10% of the interest of these dialogues...

Hmm. So, I should probably learn the dialogue and use it on my francophone friends?

Of course you should. You'd be their personal hero. Which is cool.

I could actually do it, too, as the new French Blu-ray has both English and French subtitles.

SAW 3D(2010)  3/10

Not sure why i watched this but i have an unlimited cinema card.A nasty tasteless humourless film devoid of heroes where everyone dies horribly.Don't think i'll be investigating any of the series earlier entries.

The original is actually pretty good. I've only seen the first sequel and it was enough for me.

79 primaveras (1969) "79 Springs" - 8/10
Cuban documentary/propaganda film.

Hanasaari A (2009) - 7/10
Finnish experimental documentary.

House (1977) - 1/10. Psychedelic haunted house flick from Japan. It's complete crap, but I'm giving it one point for this: the heroine's father, a film composer who has just returned from Italy, tells his daughter, "I saw Leone. He thinks my music is better than Morricone's!" That got a pretty strong laugh out of me.
