"Le Voyou", also known as The Crook, is a highly stylized French action movie which follows Simon the Swiss during his largest heist. Directed by Claude Lelouch in 1970, and starring Jean-Louis Trintignant, the movie makes use of several cinematic techniques to convey the elusive nature of the title character, among them are: a circular narrative, dialogue littered with conflicting statements, flashbacks, musical montage, multiple styles of film editing, misaligned sound editing, and a movie within the movie.
