The movies are filled with beautiful killers and brooding, haunted men struggling with their past and present. But Alain Delon in Le Samourai puts practically all of them to shame.

""Alain Delon
 gives his most memorable performance as an ice-cold assassin above such mundane
 concerns as moral conscience. Though violent in its subject matter, Jean-Pierre

 operates in a kind of dream state. It’s the opposite of the fevered emotional style of
 most gangster films." - William Friedkin"
