Belmondo and Alain Delon were probably the two biggest stars of 60's-70's French cinema. But Belmondo's ragged uneven features contrasted with Delon's classic chiselled good looks, and he was so talented that he made playing gangsters and petty criminals sexy.

RIP Bébel

Damn. Belmondo and Michael K. Williams. They both could play cool. Both sad losses.

You should watch Pierrot Le Fou, it's the original "natural born killers," in my opinion.

He did all his own stunts in action films like THAT MAN FROM RIO (1964), THE BURGLARS (1971) and FLIC OU VOYOU (COP OR HOOD, 1979). I was lucky to see a lot of his films in theaters back in the 1970s.
