Le Samouraï

Le Samouraï ★★★★

Le Samourai could almost been a silent film. The dialogues are few but it as such a visual power that carries you on with a lot of tension until the last minute!
It's very stylish! Great cinematography, amazing camera work, beautiful light, great use of colors and good music score!
Alain Delon performance remembers Ryan Gosling's in Drive. Jeff Costello is so cool and so emotionless, he never ever breaks his coolness. Probably this character had some influence on the construction of Gosling's character. Interesting.
I definitely can see how this film influenced other crime thrillers.
