Le cercle rouge

When: Sun., Aug. 6, 7 p.m. 2017

Alain Delon, a highline thief who lives in studied elegance when he’s not languishing in jail, plans an elaborate jewelry-store heist with two cohorts picked up almost at random: an escaped convict (Gian-Maria Volonté) and an alcoholic lapsed lawman rescued from a lost weekend (a great role for Yves Montand). The popular French actor André Bourvil is superbly cast against type as the nemesis cop, Matteï, a straight guy who lives alone with cats (Melville’s). We learn his routine; he’s a male Jeanne Dielman and can twist the knife when needed.

Price: $0-12
