Since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I was really impressed by the damned thing and I think it completely deserves its stellar reputation. Apparently, back in those days, the biggest rival to Alfred Hitchcock was the French director, Henri-George Clouzot. They were actually both competing to make this movie but, eventually, Clouzo... read more

Clouzot directs with a cruelty that combines a nastily tangled storyline worthy of Hitchcock with three strong performances (one of which is the beautiful Simone Signoret) and a seedy setting.
There are scenes of physical horror, but Clouzot also sets the flesh creeping with incidences of ordinary nastiness.


The remake with Isabelle Adjani, Chazz Palminteri and Sharon... read more

"Re-watch - Dec. 23rd Old-school movie day After dinner I dove into Les Diaboliques, which according to the screenshot above I'm still not allowed to tell you about. Much like the first rule of Fight Club, we're not supposed to talk about what happens in this film. I will say, however, that I'm still impressed by the way it's all put together. The cast is perfect and there's so much going on that it's as rewarding the second time around as it was the first. I'm glad I picked up a Criterion copy "
