  1. I’ve only seen Rififi and I loved it. It’s a golden standard heist picture. Beautifully shot with many magnificent uses of 1950s Paris. As much as I enjoy The Asphalt Jungle and The Killing, Rififi is superior to both.

  2. You are totally right about RIfifi being a classic. As to whether or not it is superior to both The Asphalt Jungle and The Killing is another question, but their is no denying that it ranks up there with those films as one of the many best films of the sub-genre 🙂 Thanks for dropping by 🙂
