#BornOnThisDay, we take a look at some of Chabrol's best.
Known as the 'French Hitchcock', Chabrol was the most prolific of the new wave directors, leaving behind a huge number of icily brilliant thrillers. These are some of his best.

Sparse dialogue and a restless camera give The Survivalist urgency and intensity. It's a lean and mean work which lingers.

A Parisian DJ seeks and finds the big time in Mia Hansen-Løve’s film, based on (and written with) her brother. There's a great running joke with Daft Punk ('the Bob Dylan to his Llewyn Davis', as Sight & Sound have it), while critic Jonathan Romney claims, "It evokes a sense of musical euphoria that I defy you to remain unmoved by."
