"The masterpiece of Deray, post-Melville master of Série Noire."
– Thom Andersen, PFA
"Perfect casting for Trintignant as a French hitman imported to America and efficiently executing his contract, only to discover that there appears to be a contract out on him."
– Tom Milne, Time Out
(1972, René Clement) Outside Montreal, JLT leaps from a moving train, sees a man shot who gives him $15,000, is apparently nabbed by cops, pushes a man out of a moving car – and that’s just for starters – then finds he’s joined Robert Ryan’s gang to kidnap a government witness – who may already be dead. Based on a novel by David Goodis. Approx. 122 min. 35mm.
