  1. dionysus67's rating of the film Un flic

    With a riveting opening sequence of a seaside bank robbery, Melville continues to unfold a reticent struggle between an alienated inspector and a slick gang of robbers. Reticent is also the remaining of the film with some great set-pieces (although not the train robbery scene) -many must have beeen an inspiration for subsequent US heist movies- understated performances and atmospheric social cloudiness. Good.

  2. Morteza Sayah's rating of the film Un flic

    Alain Delon plays excellent, pent-up emotions and exhaustion of routines are seen very well in the role. A police officer who cant interfere fellowship with his job and because of this he is angry and despair

  3. Elena's rating of the film Un flic

  4. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Un flic

    What cops learn to feel towards civilians is indifference and scorn, says the opening epigram. Any real-world look at that thin blue line will have to wait, because for better or worse we're in Melville-land: a place of influential pure genre cool (the cheesy train gets a pass) where cops might feel less honor/empathy than crooks. It's a shame Melville died prematurely after making this; he clearly had more in him.

  5. Nancarrow's rating of the film Un flic

  6. William R Clark's rating of the film Un flic

    Maybe 3.5, but I'm so into the colors and the sound montages that all the sloppy stuff in terms of plotting just doesn't seem to matter all that much to me.

  7. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Un flic

    Variations on familiar Melvillian themes which lacks the broader canvases of previous crime homages, perhaps instead distilling the idolatry to brass tacks, if not purity. The continuation - or sadly conclusion - of the gorgeously dour colour palette of blue-hued stylisations brings an Autumnal chill to the eternal man-alone theme so gorgeously captured in Delon’s watery beauty.

  8. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Un flic

    I would have never suspected the lead culprit to be none other than Sam Trautman from Rambo (or rather, Richard Crenna). Also, Melville hangs out in nightclubs dreams are made of.

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film Un flic

    Dernier film du cinéaste qui, pour nous, ne restera pas une référence exemplaire...

  10. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Un flic

    I understand that there are people who can suspend disbelief regarding the heist on the train sequence, but I'm not one of them. The first heist scene was fine, so why ruin it all with toy trains and a toy helicopter? It was such a long scene to sit through in the first place. In the end what are we really left with? Sighing and ennui.

  14. AdrianM.'s rating of the film Un flic

    2,5 actually. the train scene was so damn long i probably slept through it, woke up again and it was still there

  15. un flic's rating of the film Un flic

    Is there a way out of this formalist masterpiece of misogyny suiscide betrayal futility? I doubt it but will go back to Fassbinder Chabrol Rohmer ect to revise who is the best social realist of the present? Apart from Mike Liegh / ken loach, Archipelago captured a very banal tonality but turned it in to a very tense shocker

  16. DimasRimbaud's rating of the film Un flic

    Love the atmosphere but the story? Hmm, i don't think so.

  17. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Un flic

  18. riraru's rating of the film Un flic

    Delons Kopf und Stil, Deneuves Haar, die plötzlich ohne Musik tanzende Damen-Kompagnie, die beiläufige Queerness, der Modelleisenbahnzug, der Spielzeughubschrauber, die sich frisierenden Männer … Viele schöne Details in einem soliden Krimi mit amerikanischem Touch.

  19. IV NEVER BEEN TO A RODEO's rating of the film Un flic

  20. DSPRKY's rating of the film Un flic

    Delon is most certainly not playing the piano here, but hey it's not a bad film nonetheless. I do think that Deneuve was wasted, however, and this film is certainly less ambitious than Le Samouraï or Le Cercle Rouge.

  21. lylatfox's rating of the film Un flic

    Good film. Melville makes the 'coolest' films I've seen. The scene on the train is the only blemish. Way too long.

  22. chanandre's rating of the film Un flic

    [Cinémathèque PT #598: 35 mm] (2007)

  23. joey Noodles's rating of the film Un flic

    Can't say I particularly liked this one. The opening heist scene is spectacular, really well done, but the rest of the film had pacing issues and although it is well directed the story was quite weak. 3/5

  24. traag-1's rating of the film Un flic

    Nobody orchestrates a heist quite like J.P. Melville. The entire Richard Crenna train sequence is superb!
