  1. EdieEmm's rating of the film 24 Hours in the Life of a Clown

    Innovative filmmaking on a budget; nascent style; plenty of promise (obvs.). Made me want to re-watch Fellini's Clowns. 2.5

  2. El Biffo's rating of the film 24 Hours in the Life of a Clown

    I love Melville's style and I love that he loves clowns! Clowns and gamblers are part of the underworld that he films with an affection that marks his oeuvre with a rare sincerity.

  3. Duncan Gray's rating of the film 24 Hours in the Life of a Clown

    A fine, charming little short to mark Melville's debut. The 18 minutes are brisk, if slight, but it shows a few aspects of his sensibility forming: an economy of construction, a loose way of consciously molding the real world to narrative purposes, and the inclusion of Melville himself as the cool-headed raconteur overseeing it.

  4. chanandre's rating of the film 24 Hours in the Life of a Clown

    So he sleeps with his cute dog, but his wife sleep in a separate room? Good morning misogyny. Gross> :s

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film 24 Hours in the Life of a Clown

    Un documentaire sur la vie du célèbre clown Beby que Melville a toujours obstinément refusé de montrer. Heureusement, que sa diffusion s'est tout de même déroulée, durant une soirée consacrée au court métrage. Ce qui nous a permis de partager son point de vue : en effet, le film ne peut avoir comme seule attention, un intérêt comptable, pour avoir été la première réalisation de Melville ..... www.cinefiches.com

    middle fingers for dropping the ball and not having Code Name Melville and Melville Steps Out of the Shadows, among other non-Grumbach documentaries
