The Rules of the Game (1939)
This was really good. Maybe not "best of all-time" good like a lot of people say, but very solid. Everyone is very ugly in this movie, including the lead woman whom all the male characters pine for. Considering the risk Renoir took using such a homely cast (including himself as the bumbling failure Octave), I can see why it's a critics' favorite.
