Dir. Jacques Becker. 1960, 132 mins. DCP. With Marc Michel. The great director Jean-Pierre Melville called Becker’s Le Trou “a masterpiece, and…I weigh my words carefully: the greatest French film of all time.” A film of unrelenting drama, tension, and humanity, Le Trou follows four men in La Santé Prison. Staring down the barrel at hard time, they decide to try a prison break and are forced to bring on a fifth member, Claude Gaspard (Marc Michel), when he is assigned to their cell. The particulars of the escape, based on actual events, are rendered in painstaking detail as the five men dream of freedom. The screening will be followed by a 30-minute presentation by Ri
