ascenseur pour l’echafaud (even more gift ideas)

everything about this movie is amazing. the absolutely gorgeous jeanne moreau wandering around nighttime paris, the improvisational score created by miles davis, the clever manipulation of the noir plot structure, and the fact that it was directed by a twenty-four-year-old  louis malle are some of the reasons why this film is a must have. the special edition double disc set by the criterion collection has interviews, documentaries, and malle’s student film crazeologie.
