Re: RARA-AVIS: Advice about some selections (films)

Detective (1985): Unless you want to know everything about Godard's films, you better skip this one: too talkative, longish and too willingly referential to crime movies. Keep your money for some better Noir...

Hangmen also die (1943): a good film as it is, but handling WW2 situations and as it was produced during that period it carries some of the war propaganda views.

I do not remember enough about the other films to give a comment.
