Lift to the Scaffold (1958)

Louis Malle directs Jeanne Moreau, Maurice Ronet and Georges Poujouly in this Parisian noir where a perfect murder is scuppered when the killer is trapped in the building’s elevator overnight, his partner in crime thinks he has abandoned her and two kids go on a joyride in his car.

Fate. Justice. Miles Davis soundtrack. Jeanne Moreau wandering the Champs-Élysées at night. Supercool.
