  1. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    A stylish little crime drama from Louis Malle. The only thing that really bugged me about it was the criminal competence of our four main characters. Being an incompetent criminal is something that I can buy into from at least three of them; but being an incompetent person is a completely different story, and there are some completely idiotic character decisions that happened seemingly to just move the plot forward.

  2. gld48's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Jeanne Moreau's hair deserved an Oscar alone. Fantastic film. Beautiful in black & white too.

  3. merzka's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Karma for an antagonist. Malle at his most easily digestible.

  4. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  5. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Jeanne Moreau walking is a work of art. Along with Malle, Antonioni knew it. Walking to a Miles Davis score is beyond description.

  7. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Great story of irony and fate, with a marvelous Jeanne Moreau.

  8. smndvdcl's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Louis Malle, a valedictorian in French cinema in the late 50s who could never fully match the magical quality of his debut feature. One could have a field day picking at the film's lack of continuity, its inconsequential temporal shifts, its fragmented causality. Then you realise that it is indicative of an emerging New Wave school of thought inherent in the work of Truffaut, Godard, Becker and Melville. Marvellous.

  10. Endless Eye's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    I've heard the claim that jazz music wasn't synonymous with noir films until after this film came out, or films like M Squad with music by Count Basie in the following year. Is it true that the jazz failed to enter noir until the late 1950's? Anyone know? Either way - despite its flaws, this is a wonderful old flick by Louis Malle.

    "If you could live a parallel life, do you think you'd want to share more of it with me?" he didn't ask. "Maybe," she didn't answer.

  14. FISCHER's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Un des meilleurs films de Louis Malle, qui est devenu un classique du film noir français, magnifiquement scandé par le génial Miles Davis et son orchestre... www.cinefiches.com

  16. cherbourgdoll's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    & half jeanne moreau is so beautiful you can't look away

  17. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    I think this survives the test of time more than BREATHLESS. The story is quite suspenseful and contains some great irony and it is way sexier.

  18. Chris's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    9/10 - great music + nighttime shots

  19. s.birowo's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Nothing is more beautiful than Paris at night and when it's raining, while Miles Davis tones resonate as you pass by.

  20. Joel's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Slick settings, the late night walks and a truly wonderful soundtrack cover the screen in style and a drip of atmosphere but! BUT! But what to make of the film in it's entirety but raves of a new kind of cool and perhaps a confident re-imagining of the mystery-thriller.

  21. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  22. N. C.'s rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

  23. bryanvmh's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    Surprisingly funny while also maintaining a sense of self-seriousness

  24. bernardovazdecastro's rating of the film Elevator to the Gallows

    3,5 There is nothing unusual or remarkable on these film, until the end. Of course, before the revelation scene you have some good moments too, but these idea is extraordinary. Because the authentic medium in this film is photography and not cinema. Malle creat such an intricate plot and at end, photography reveals the true about the two couples. It's like the same game that Antonioni did in "Blow Up".
