    Ascenseur pour l'échafaud (Elevator to the Gallows) (1958, Louis Malle)

    Elevator to the Gallows (1957), Louis Malle. The breakthrough film for the one and only Jeanne Moreau. Add a soundtrack by Miles Davis that was improvised and recorded live as the film played. What can I say? This is a masterpiece thriller.

    my favorite movie ever. the perfection lies in it's simplicity. the plot is based off of a dime store noir caper novel. a 25 year-old louis malle is at the helm while louis armstrong soundtracks a never sexier jeanne moreau, filmed in black and white, bathed only in lamppost lighting, wandering up and down the champs-elysées in the wake of a murderous affair. atmosphere and style make this a touchstone of '50s parisian cinema.

    Jeanne Moreau wandering through the Parisian night, back-lit by headlights, streetlights and neon, her murderous lover frantically trapped in an elevator, Miles Davis' trumpet on the radio of a stolen car - a perfect hybrid of French cool, American Jazz, French New Wave, American film noir.

I wasn't a big fan of fellini's Amarcord, so i though this film was going to be bad. However, I was surprised by masina's performance as a prostitute who is looking for companionship. It breaks you heart knowing that Cabiria just wants to have a normal loving relationship like normal people, but is destine to be alone. This film is out of print.
