RIFIFI
Dassin | 1955 | France | 115m
“Gaumont Thrillers:
From Fantômas to A Gang Story”
2:30 at MoMA

“The modern heist movie was invented in Paris in 1954 by Jules Dassin… Rififi was called by François Truffaut the best film noir he’d ever seen (it was based, he added, on the worst noir novel he’d ever read). Dassin’s inspiration was to expand the safe-cracking job, which is negligible in the book, into a breathless sequence that occupies a fourth of the running time and is played entirely without words or music. So meticulous is the construction and so specific the detail of this scene that it’s said the Paris police briefly banned the movie because they feared it was an instructional guide.”
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
