Still image from the film Bob Le Flambeur
Silver-haired ex-gangster Bob Montagné (Roger Duchesne) moves from poker to craps to the track and back before one last heist, the Deauville casino. Filled with wry humor, Jean-Pierre Melville’s Bob le Flambeur blends the American gangster toughness of the noir films of the 1950s with a sense of sophistication and stoicism that became his trademark. The film influenced Oceans Eleven (1960/2001), and Paul Thomas Anderson’s Hard Eight. It was remade by Neil Jordan as The Good Thief in 2002. In French with English subtitles. (35mm Presentation)
