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. His performance is a master class in underplaying everything; he barely registers an emotion, keeping his cool poker face throughout the various twists and turns of the film.

His character, Jef Costello,... read more

"First viewing - March 11th I can see the various ways Le Samourai influenced the films that followed it, and I thought it was pretty solid all around. I didn't fall in love with it, but it's an interesting movie and I'm glad I finally watched it."

Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

""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
 Melville’s film is also cool, meticulously lit, and classically framed. It
 operates in a kind of dream state. It’s the opposite of the fevered emotional style of
 most gangster films." - William Friedkin"
