"Elevator to the Gallows"
Directed by Louis Malle
A Hitchcock-like romantic thriller from director Louis
Malle (Atlantic City, Au Revoir les Enfants) which features a
terrific early performance by French superstar Jeanne Moreau as a woman
waiting for her lover to return from committing the "perfect crime." Malle
sets old Hollywood film noir formulas to new rhythms in what is one of the
first films of the French New Wave. Original jazz score by the late great
Miles Davis. In French with English subtitles.
