Jacques Becker Classics

4

Revered by the French New Wave and forming a bridge between classic ’30s French cinema and Melville’s ’50s crimers, Jacques Becker’s 13 eclectic but exacting, subtle and honest films were made between 1935 and 1960. The three released here, including swansong Le Trou, make an understated but profound case for his naturalistic casting, moral neutrality and warts-and-all take on character in context.
