Claude Chabrol 1930-2010

Chabrol, a prolific, often inspired director and prominent member of the French New Wave, died today in Paris at 80.
Coincidentally, I'm writing a new blog post about a 1938 novel by Nicholas Blake titled "The Beast Must Die," which was the inspiration for Chabrol's 1969 film, "Que la Bete Meure." I haven't seen it, but just ordered it from NetFlix. Stay tuned.
Last year, I wrote about three films of Chabrol's. You can check the post if you care by searching for "3xChabrol." It ran on June 27, 2009.
