Georges Franju

This effortlessly cool crime caper, directed by Georges Franju, is a marvel of dexterous plotting and visual invention. Conceived as an homage to Louis Feuillade’s 1916 cult silent serial of the same name, Judex kicks off with the mysterious kidnapping of a corrupt banker by a shadowy crime fighter (American magician Channing Pollock) and spins out into a thrillingly complex web of deceptions. Combining stylish sixties modernism with silent-cinema touches and even a few unexpected sci-fi accents, Judex is a delightful bit of pulp fiction and a testament to the art of illusion. — Janus Films

«In its juxtaposition of light and shadow and the calculated imposition of threats, illusions and false personas on the respective villains and protagonists, viewers are plunged into a whirlwind of intrigue and mystery that hardly needs to rely on “making sense” in order to sell itself as a worthwhile pastime. Mountaintop hideouts, secret passageways, weird technology simultaneously arcane and futuristic, a straightforward and deeply beguiling manifestation of authentic, non-ironic cloak and dagger, all this and more make Judex an intoxicating treat that invites us to stop and stare.» — David Blakeslee, Criterion Cast
