    Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville

    (1955) Through the night streets of Montmartre saunters silver-haired Bob Montagné (Roger Duchesne), ex-gangster and, as per his nickname, a  “flambeur” (high roller, or compulsive gambler), moving from poker to craps to the track to roulette to baccarat and back, at the break of dawn, to the one-armed bandit he keeps in his posh pad. Ever-dapper in a snap-brim and raincoat, with the occasional tux thrown in, Bob shows neophyte hood Daniel Cauchy the ropes and looks out for lusciously amoral mignon Isabelle Corey, though there may be time for one last, spectacular heist:  the casino at Deauville. Melville’s first original screenplay, co-scripted with French pulp novelist Auguste Le Breton (Rififi), and the first of his gangster films, here done

  • Film: Django

  • Jan 5, 2018 at 1:00pm to Jan 19, 2018 at 2:00pm
  • Location: IFC Center
  • Description:

    Dear film enthusiast,

     The biopic "Django" based on the life of famed jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, is coming to the IFC Center on January 5th, 2018. 

    Here is the trailer:

    Django tells the story of famed jazz guitarist Reinhardt, elegantly interpreted by Reda Kateb (A Prophet, Zero Dark Thirty). He is the toast of 1943 Paris, thrilling audiences with his distinctive brand of “hot jazz” and charming his admirers including his muse played by Cécile de France (Hereafter, Chinese Puzzle). But even as the rise of Nazism forces Reinhardt — whose music is considered degenerate under the Third Reich — to make a daring escape from Paris, he refuses to be silenced as his music becomes a form of protest.
