Jean-Pierre Melville: Vingt-quatre heures de la vie d’un clown and Le Silence de la mer

Chris has taken over the sports nonsense from me for this Melville series, so without further ado: Baseball has sped up spring training games to such a blazing fast speed with the pitch clock that it’s given us even more time to pay attention to wild and crazy NBA & NHL trade deadlines. But the award for “What is even going on?”, as always, goes to the NFL. Any team in the league can sign Lamar Jackson (for $250 million and 2 1st rd picks) but only Baltimore has even offered him a contract Carolina has traded up to 1st overall to draft a QB but to do so gave away their top WR. And somewhere out there your favorite team is probably just waiting to do something between now and week 1 that is met with all those reaction gifs of people looking around in utter bewilderment.

This episode, we’re starting our new series! We’ll be going through the films of Jean-Pierre Melville, starting off with Vingt-quatre heures de la vie d’un clown (24 Hours in the Life of a Clown) and Le Silence de la mer (The Silence of the┬áSea).
