One of the few contemporaries of Hitchcock who gave the Master of Suspense a run for his money, Henri-Georges Clouzot dealt in misanthropic, black-humored tales of greed, jealousy, murder, immorality, and revenge. Once widely misunderstood—the director was charged with Nazi sympathies for Le corbeau and was derided by the French New Wave—the work of Henri-Georges Clouzot today looks far ahead of its time.

Eighty-nine seconds of pure Criterion terror. How many of these scream-worthy movies can you name? A vicious series of poison-pen letters spreads rumours, suspicion and fear among the inhabitants of a small French town, and one after another, they turn on each other as their hidden secrets are unveiled - but the one secret that no-one can uncover is the identity of the letters' author No doubt they reflect their upbringing in the stifling French village of St. But the evil epistles disgorge more than enough malice to go around, alluding to dirty little secrets that touch just about everybody in this Gallic Peyton Place.
When one of the letters causes the suicide of a young man dying of liver cancer, another slips out of a wreath on his casket during his funeral procession, and yet another flutters from the rafters of the church during the requiem mass. Alone among the townsfolk, the mother Sylvie of the suicide seems resigned and resolute To be sure, Le Corbeau, like most of Clouzot's work Diabolique, The Wages of Fear seems to take Shakespeare's misanthropic Timon of Athens as inspiration for its outlook on humanity; it's certainly no tourist brochure for the French provinces.
None of that sentimental nonsense for Clouzot, who unrepentantly hewed to his malevolent vision right to the bitter end. Explore popular and recently added TV series available to stream now with Prime Video. Start your free trial.
