Rififi DVD - 2018 | French

Classics are classics for a reason. In 1955, Jules Dassin gave us the blueprint for what is arguably THE classic heist movie, despite one reviewer's suggestion that the film be "speeded up and recreated in the editting [sic] room to become a masterpiece." Perhaps he thinks the 2014 publication date of this Criterion Collection release was the original release date of the film? For his thesis as a film student, perhaps he could take on the assignment. Maybe add some edgy hip-hop to the safe-cracking scene? Yeah, that's the ticket. He could call his version "Covfefe!" I'd watch that! (I'd also suggest an alternate for his viewing pleasure if he likes his movies speedy - the excellent "Run Lola Run" should satisfy his desire for speed and modernity, and it's definitely a masterpiece. In fact, Ima go watch that again - it's been too long.)
