Over the weekend, I attended a special screening of Coup de Torchon, a French film adaptation of Jim Thompson’s novel Pop. 1280.
I’d never seen this film and did not know it existed. Having seen it now, I’m very very glad I made the effort. I won’t bore you with my thoughts except to suggest that if you’re a Thompson fan, or a film fan, or if you have a couple free hours, you might like to check it out.
