Bob Le Flambeur and Le Doulos. Got to see this as a double feature in the theater.
for me it has to be Army of Shadows
Le Samourai and Le Cercles Rouge altho I think Un Flic is underrated.
This is absolutely, positively the hardest question in the entire forum.
You just made my face explode trying to think up a single answer. I can’t handle this.
I have yet to see any but I just order Le Samourai and my friend is letting me borrow Army of Shadows.
That’s tough alright. Army of Shadows because it has the most amazing opening sequence with the Nazis marching through Paris. Otherwise they are all consistently good, at least all the ones I’ve seen.
Coin toss for me, between Un Filc or Le Samourai.
A tough choice I love all of them but Le Samurai is the best A perfect film.

Le Samourai – and we wonder if someone on the set of The Driver must have seen that film, irrespective of Schrader’s insistence on never having seen it! Aye, right. Travis Bickle lying on his bed.
For me, at the moment, it has to be The Army of Shadows. For the scene in front of the firing squad alone. But like everyone else (Vincendeau included), I’ll change my mind.
Le Cercles Rouge and The Army of Shadows, followed closely by Bob LeFlambeur. But they’re all very good!
Bob Le Flambeur
after a while Melville’s films start to all look the same.. He loves using Alain Delon and often has him playing the same roles, the general “cool” gangster character. None the less I like Melville and his films very much and he is one of the best
Le Samourai for the fact that it was the first Melville film I saw.. The duo between him and Delon was noticeable right away and carried through Le Cercle Rouge— which was great, but felt very much similar to Le Samourai. The most defined and greatest achievement for Melville I felt was Army of Shadows, also his most “polished” film. I do wish we could have seen Delon walking the dark corridors or brilliant streets of Army of Shadows though.
“Le Samourai” although I still haven’t seen “Bob Le Flambour” or “Les Enfents Terribles”
Le Samourai. Not sure about the order of the rest but Le Silence da Le Mer is probably in the top 5 along with Bob Le Flambeur, Le Cercle Rouge, and Army of Shadows. I plan on watching Leon Morin and Second Breath sometime soon.
Definitely Bob Le Flambeur, closely followed by Le Samourai and Le Cercle Rouge. I re-watched Le Doulos just the other and something about it stops me from placing it among my favorites…not sure what it is. I actually didn’t care for Le Deuxième Souffle at all.
Les Enfants Terribles, adaptation d’une œuvre littéraire de Jean Cocteau. D’ailleurs c’est Cocteau qui signe la voix off du film.
Army of Shadows effected me the most
“army of shadows” transcends everything else he’s ever done
I have not seen Army of Shadows yet. Le Samourai take the gold, easily, as of right now though..
Léon Morin, prêtre
Le Silence de la mer
Le Cercle rouge
Army of Shadows
So far: Army of Shadows, Bob le flambeur, Le cercle rouge, looking forward to deuxieme souffle and le samourai.
Le samouraï. Such a cool film.
