Episode 466: Le Doulos (1962)

Guest Co-Hosts: Samm Deighan, Ken Stanley

We kick off French Month with a look at Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Doulos (1962). The second of his several and seminal gangster films, Le Doulos is the story of two men -- Silien (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and Faugel (Serge Reggiani). They are denizens of the underworld where loyalty and honor are everything. When a burglary Faugel has planned goes awry he thinks that it’s Silien who set him up. Is Silien the titular "Doulos," an informer?

Samm Deighan and Ken Stanley join Mike to wax fondly about Jean-Pierre Melville and his rich career.
