Rififi in the City

Rififi in the City ★★★

Closed, hermetic post-noir with that Aldrich/Siegel/Fuller vibe (and just a smitch of Bunuel). There's a raffish, first-draft quality to the way Franco handles narrative that doesn't compare with the classical-Hollywood formalism of his models, but early-sixties Euro genre appropriations tend to roll that way, yes?
