Georges Franju Frankreich, 1963

Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Judex

The masked avenger Judex has exacted revenge on a corrupt banker, and what follows is about 100 minutes of pure pulp action shot with a flowing, poetic camera. It's gorgeous to look at, and this film is just plain fun. It has underground lairs, masked heroes, women, rooftop fights, detectives, secret passageways, criminals disguised as nuns, murder, lies, and so on and so on. I love this movie, someone get it a DVD.
