Re: RE : RARA-AVIS: Great crime film

One thing (of many, great film) that struck me is how its story, even presentation, overlap a number of genre films (particularly blaxploitation and The Harder They Come), but use it to such a distinctive, individual end. I'm not big on the idea of "transcending genre," but this film is a great example of how genre and high art can co-exist.
