Shoot The Piano Player: A Good One #15
A piano player in a dive bar is visited by his brother who is trying to elude a couple of criminals. This brief encounter with his family forces the piano player to revisit his past, only now the criminals are after him. A lovely, sad and thoughtful film with excellent performances and cinematography. I found it to be a profound examination of time and the inevitable repetition of history. Classified as a thriller, it's more fitting to call it a noirish drama from the French New Wave. On Netflix Instant Streaming.
