Quote: The dark shadows of New York come to life in
Two Men in Manhattan(1959), Melville's rarely seen, jazz-soaked noir masterpiece. A French UN delegate has disappeared into thin air, sending reporter Moreau (Melville) and hard-drinking photographer Delmas (Pierre Grasset) on an ethically fraught mission to find him. Their only lead is a picture of three women. Set against a smoky jazz score and featuring stunning black-and-white cinematography by Nicolas Hayer ( Le Corbeau, Le Doulos) that beautifully captures the gritty streets at night, this is director Melville's love letter to New York City and homage to American film noir.
