Série Noire

Synopsis

In one of the strangest pairings in film adaptation history, French modernist Georges Perec does American pulp bruiser Jim Thompson, with surprisingly harmonious results. Patrick Dewaere, the too-soon-gone premiere wild man of ‘70s French cinema, plays the entirely-amoral Thompson protagonist to the hilt, his frenzied performance driving the film headlong towards derangement. A queasy-funny downer, unmatched as a screen evocation of the purgatorial, sodden Parisian suburbs.
