Le Samouraï ★★★★½

Such style, such refinement! Melville is attentive to every detail, there is a level of sophistication rarely achieved cinema; in the way the camera follows Jef (Delon) down the corridors and in the street, in the way he puts his hat on, his mannerisms; the camera work is just superb and seems to flow perfectly with Jef's every move, contributing to an almost mystical atmosphere and rhythm throughout the film.
