Claude Chabrol is dead


September 12, 2010. Claude Chabrol is dead. RIP. One of the very few French directors I liked (not snobbishly pseudo-intellectual, nor given to vulgar populism). He gave us Les Biches, Le Boucher, La Décade prodigieuse. He was married for some years to the divine Stéphane Audran. My favorite period: 1968-1971.
