Rififi for the win

Du rififi chez les hommes. Jules Dassin. Flim noir and gangsters meet for a good movie. The acting is good and timeless, the shots are limited in budget but high on impact and intent. It set the tone for many movies afterwards and is study material for any film director. The title rififi became a term for criminal showmanship as well as a type of french movie. Well worth watching. (1955)
