Brief Note on Army of Shadows:
Jean-Pierre Melville's Army of Shadows (1969) (aka L' Armée des Ombres) starring the always charming and talented Simone Signoret. Briefly: It's a bit difficult going for a first viewing, especially as it subverts the genre expectations of the viewer on many different levels. But, it rather grows on one toward the end. It presents an interesting dilemma in the fight against fascism, and on one level is a critique of the French Resistance and its rather 'fascist' 'gangland' methods of eliminating suspect members. Mirrors the disillusionment with the events of post-May 1968.
