Despite a stellar cast (Alain Delon, Catherine Deneuve, Richard Crenna), this 1972 film, the last by the great noir stylist Jean-Pierre Melville, is a murky disappointment. Crenna is a corrupt cop who sets up his drug-dealing friend Delon for a bust; there’s a chase on a train, a robbery in the rain, and other Melvillian set pieces that never congeal. Released in the U.S. as Dirty Money. In French with subtitles.
