Collector’s Set Includes

Army of Shadows box cover

Army of Shadows

Jean-Pierre Melville 1969

Atmospheric and gripping, Army of Shadows is Melville’s most personal film, featuring Lino Ventura, Paul Meurisse, Jean-Pierre Cassel, and the incomparable Simone Signoret as intrepid underground fighters who must grapple with their conception of honor in their battle against Hitler’s regime.


Au hasard Balthazar box cover

Au hasard Balthazar

Robert Bresson 1966

Robert Bresson’s Au hasard Balthazar follows the donkey Balthazar as he is passed from owner to owner, some kind and some cruel, but all with motivations beyond his understanding—a profound masterpiece from one of the most revered filmmakers in the history of cinema.


Band of Outsiders box cover

Band of Outsiders

Jean-Luc Godard 1964

Four years after Breathless, Jean-Luc Godard reimagined the gangster film even more radically with Band of Outsiders. In it, two restless young men (Sami Frey and Claude Brasseur) enlist the object of both of their fancies (Anna Karina) to help them commit a robbery—in her own home.


Billy Liar box cover

Billy Liar

John Schlesinger 1963

Tom Courtenay is Billy Fisher, the underachieving undertaker’s assistant whose constant daydreams and truth-deficient stories earn him the nickname “Billy Liar.” Deftly veering from gritty realism to flamboyant fantasy, Billy Liar is a dazzling and uproarious classic.


The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie box cover

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie

Luis Buñuel 1972

In Luis Buñuel’s deliciously satiric Oscar winner, an upper-class sextet sits down to dinner but never eats, their attempts continually thwarted by a vaudevillian mixture of events both actual and imagined.


Mafioso box cover

Mafioso

Alberto Lattuada 1962

Auto-factory foreman Nino (Alberto Sordi) takes his proper, modern wife and daughters from industrial Milan to rural Sicily to visit his family and get back in touch with his roots in Alberto Lattuada’s devastatingly funny character study—equal parts culture-clash farce and existential nightmare.


Murderous Maids box cover

Murderous Maids

Jean-Pierre Denis 2000

More than seventy years on, the case of the Papin sisters, the servants who murdered and mutilated their mistress and her daughter in pre-World War II Le Mans, remains an enigma. Jean-Pierre Denis’s film is the definitive screen version.


Rififi box cover

Rififi

Jules Dassin 1955

After making such American noir classics as Brute Force and The Naked City, the blacklisted director Jules Dassin went to Paris and embarked on his masterpiece: a twisting, turning tale of four ex-cons who hatch one last glorious robbery in the City of Light.


The Third Man box cover

The Third Man

Carol Reed 1949

Pulp novelist Holly Martins travels to shadowy, postwar Vienna, only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of an old friend, black-market opportunist Harry Lime—and thus begins this legendary tale of love, deception, and murder.


Touchez pas au grisbi box cover

Touchez pas au grisbi

Jacques Becker 1954

Having pulled off the heist of a lifetime, Max looks forward to spending his remaining days relaxing with his beautiful young girlfriend. But when Max’s hapless partner lets word of the loot slip to loose-lipped, two-timing Josy (Jeanne Moreau), Max is reluctantly drawn back into the underworld.


Deep Crimson box cover

Deep Crimson

Arturo Ripstein 1996

In this alternately macabre and mirthful thriller, based on a true-crime story, renowned Mexican director Arturo Ripstein brings a stylish audacity to the tale of the “Lonely Hearts Killers,” a couple who, in the 1940s, posed as brother and sister to lure and murder unsuspecting widows.
