THE ASSASSIN LIVES AT 21
L’ASSASSIN HABITE A 21
1942, Janus Films, 84 min, France, Dir: Henri-Georges Clouzot

Inspector Wems is back in this claustrophobic murder mystery by first-time director Henri-Georges Clouzot. This time, it’s Clouzot’s show all the way, as the director finds his stride in giving his star Pierre Fresnay room to be completely exasperated by the chaos surrounding him. A superb and eccentric thriller from the famed director of DIABOLIQUE and THE WAGES OF FEAR.
