josé neves's rating of the film Bob le flambeur

DCP, re-rating. Early on, in its beginning, there's a foreshadowing of what this film aims. A self-expository and demiurgic use of a narrator's voice over panoramic images of a city by night: a self-conscious narrative that brings together characters-type and situations-cliché in order to mutate them into a diffuse nonchalant narrativity, casually relaxed with its own device. Cinematography by Henri Decaë.
