Le Samouraï

Le Samouraï ★★★★½

Le Samourai is a perfect film. It's a fascinating character study of a hitman, who's calm, smart, and cold, who commits the wrong murder that eventually gets himself caught. It is certainly not an action film, but it most definitely a tense one. It's full of long takes that build such immense suspense with long sequences of pure silence, which ups the tension, and just to add to the impressiveness this film already had going for it, it also has some badass characters. Yet, the characters remain somewhat of a mystery. Not much is revealed, yet we are intrigued. And um...

If I said anything else it would spoil it.
