Movie #1780: Le Doulos (1962, Jean-Pierre Melville)

Like watching a craftsman at work. Melville builds this tale of cross and double-cross beautifully. I've seen a couple of his before and I thought they were a little dry. Not this one - kept me glued to the computer screen all the way through.

Movie #1781: Divorce American Style (1967, Bud Yorkin)

TCM had an all-day Debbie Reynolds film festival so I figured I'd seen enough quality pictures lately: time for some piffle! Sure enough, this one hits the spot. Not only do we get Debbie Reynolds but Dick Van Dyke too. The screenplay is total nonsense. But it's not really funny either. It's more just............... well, piffle!
