From Jean-Pierre Melville, the legendary director of Le Samourai and Le Doulos comes the crime-filled 1972 neo-noir Un Flic (aka Dirty Money).

A Paris police chief (Alain Delon, Purple Noon) discovers that his nightclub owner friend (Richard Crenna, The Flamingo Kid) also leads a group of bank robbers. When he’s tipped off that the same robbers are planning a drug heist, the police chief races to defeat his two-faced friend. Meanwhile, the police chief has engaged in some double-crossing himself—by sharing the same woman (Catherine Deneuve, Mississippi Mermaid) with the man he calls his friend.

Melville’s last film is filled with all the flourishes that one expects in a Melville film: trademark silences, grim faces and gloomy colors, featuring stunning photography by the great Walter Wottitz (The Train).

-NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Samm Deighan
-Interviews with Jean-Francois Delon (Alain’s brother) and Florence Gabin (Jean’s daughter)
