Le Samouraï

Le Samouraï ★★★★★

One of the greatest movies ever made in any genre, any movement, any country, any period. From the opening shot Melville crafted a mesmerising film noir featuring quite possibly the coolest protagonist the genre will ever know. Told with so few words it makes There Will Be Blood look positively verbose in comparison, I could watch this movie on repeat for an entire day and not get bored of seeing Melville's art. I may however lose my voice from exclaiming in awe too frequently.
