And You Call Yourself a Film Buff?! – The Rules of the Game

Rule of the Game

Jean Renoir’s The Rules of the Game (1939) or La Règle du jeu is one of those films that often flies below the pop-culture radar, but for any ‘film buff’, it’s a must watch. I never fail to hear it mentioned in film class, either by my professor or by some astute film buff who boasts a full bookcase of the Criterion collection in the flesh. The Rules of the Game is widely regarded as one of the great masterpieces in the history of cinema, ranking among heavyweights such as Citizen Kane and Bicycle Thieves. Interestingly enough, the film was not recognized as such until about a decade after its initial release.
