Details

Towards the end of his career, Melville worked with leading man Alain Delon multiple times, but the two were arguably never better than in Le Samouraï. Adding Japanese lone-warrior mythology to Melville’s unique blend of American and French gangster drama, this film follows a meticulous hit man who finds himself backed into a corner after he is witnessed carrying out a job one night. Many see Le Samouraï as Melville’s crime masterpiece, and the director mixes noir tropes (the killer, the cops, the underworld) with new wave flairs to blend a heady cocktail of cool.
