Le Cercle Rouge (1970)
Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.
Le Cercle Rouge Le Cercle Rouge  
An ex-cop turned criminal is lying in bed surrounded by empty booze bottles. Instead of seeing pink elephants, he sees giant spiders that crawl through the door onto his chest as he gapes in horror. Then a boa constrictor and a green iguana come in and crawl up to and on his bed joined by a chameleon, a Uromastix and some more iguanas. Then rats cover him. The snake and the lizrds may have been a frightening site in 1970, and maybe still are to herp-phobic people today, but it looked to me like a totally harmless collection of common pet-store animals, as if he was being attacked by fuzzy kittens and puppies. Nevertheless, this is a great heist film by the great French director, Jean-Pierre Melville.
