Kick-Back Friday: #3
Speaking of 1956 black-and-white heist movies…this week, the Pathophilia blog recommends Rififi (“Trouble” en français). The magnetically reticent Jean Servais stars as a seasoned thief who attempts to pull off one last, great jewel robbery. Particularly delightful is the ensemble break-in, with its silent (literally), low-tech ingeniousness. According to the imdb, Al Pacino has signed up for a 2009 remake.
