Dirty Money (Aka Un Flic) is acclaimed director Jean-Pierre Melville's final film, a film noir story about a Paris police chief (ALAIN DELON) who discovers that his nightclub owner friend (RICHARD CRENNA) also leads a group of bank robbers. When he's tipped off that the same robbers are planning a drug heist, the police chief races to defeat his two-faced friend. Meanwhile, the police chief has engaged in some double-crossing himself - by sharing the same woman (CATHERINE DENEUVE) with the man he calls his friend.

Metacritic Score

  • 90

    Village Voice Simon Abrams

    Haunted by death-obsessed men of action, Un Flic (A Cop) is a fitting final act for noir master Jean-Pierre Melville

  • 80

    Time Out New York Keith Uhlich

    Delon and Crenna paint an idealized portrait of masculine camaraderie, one that's exposed at the end of Melville's bracing last testament as a soul-shattering illusion.

  • 60

    The New York Times Janet Maslin

    The forcefulness and mystery of Mr. Melville's direction often generate an urgency that keeps the film from feeling vague. [30 Nov. 1979]
