PÉPÉ LE MOKO & TOUCHEZ PAS AU GRISBI

PÉPÉ LE MOKO

(1937, Julien Duvivier) While slumming in Algiers’ Casbah, Mireille Balin encounters the caïd of the labyrinthine quarter, Jean Gabin’s impeccably-dressed French crook-on-the-run Pépé Le Moko. Then it’s clear that if les flics can’t get Pépé, l’amour can. Approx. 94 min. 35mm.
1:00, 4:40, 8:20

“Raises the thriller to a poetic level.”
– Graham Greene

“Superb entertainment. A classic romantic melodrama and one of the most compelling of all the fatalistic French screen romances.”
– Pauline Kael

“A vigorous thriller…full of sinuous camerawork, dingy sets, deep shadows, and even darker motives.”
Time Out (London)

 

PÉPÉ LE MOKO & TOUCHEZ PAS AU GRISBI

TOUCHEZ PAS AU GRISBI

(1954, Jacques Becker) Over-the-hill gangster Jean Gabin has just pulled the heist of a lifetime: enough grisbi (loot) for a cushy retirement. But when moll Jeanne Moreau spills the beans to bad guy Lino Ventura, it’s time for a showdown with guns and grenades.
2:50, 6:30, 10:10

“Becker's film, full of neat angles and delightful little bits of business, is laconic and admirably methodical.”
