Elevator to the Gallows

Rated NR 90 minutes 2014

(aka L'Ascenseur pour l'echafaud). Louis Malle's 1958 entry in the Melville-Nouvelle-Vague-Paris-lowlife-on-the-lam film category is solid suspense, as Jeanne Moreau and Maurice Ronet trip over the details of their murder plot and the whole world rushes in. Add a musical score by Miles Davis and claustrophobic photography by Henri Decae, and you have the very definition of nutty Gallic cool.
