Le Samouraï

Le Samouraï ★★★★½

Week 24 of the Letterboxd Season Challenge 2015-16: French New Wave Era Week. My list.

A movie so cool, my city had the lowest temperature of the month the morning I watched it (and that's a rock fact!), Le Samouraï's influence on a lot of other movies, including one of my favorites, Drive, is very obvious. Jef Costello, effortlessly played by Alain Delon, is mostly mute but mysterious and awesome. It's a very minimal movie, there's little dialogue and a lot of tension.
