Jean-Luc Godard’s DÉTECTIVE (1985) is an invigorating deconstruction of film noir that adds a dash of Grand Hotel (1932) melodrama and Body and Soul (1947) boxing drama, all tied into an arresting Godardian knot.


In a luxury Paris hotel, two detectives (Laurent Terzieff and Jean-Pierre Le?aud) are working on the vexing case of an assassinated prince. In a nearby room, boxing trainer Jim Fox Warner (Johnny Hallyday) is getting his young prote?ge? ready for a fight. But Jim owes big money to the mob, as well as to the Chenals, a bickering husband and wife (Claude Brasseur and Nathalie Baye). In Godard’s fractured, poetic style, the tension ratchets up between these groups until they reach a bloody breaking point.


Blu-ray Extras Include:

-Booklet essay by Nicolas Rapold, editor of Film Comment
-Trailers Selected scene commentary by James Quandt, programmer for the TIFF Cinematheque
