      It’s always nice to discover something for the first time and the Claude Chabrol Collection certainly was something new to me. But, barring the clever plot of Que La Bete Meure and the japes of Nada, I can’t really see what the appeal is of this highly regarded filmmaker. The much-touted suspense is practically non-existent and the insistence on slow, protracted character disassembly soon begins to grate. In his extensive canon of work, there may be some genuinely classic films, but I fear that none of them reside in this meandering collection. If you must dip in for a taster then obviously I recommend Que La Bete Meure though, sadly, the transfer is possibly the worst of the bunch.An acquired taste, perhaps. But Chabrol has yet to convince me.
