Le Samouraï

Le Samouraï ★★★★★

Le Samouraï, portrayed by Alain Delon, is in my opinion the most cinematic character of all time. Silent, tough, emotionally inaccessible and not to mention that nobody could look cooler in this role. What more could you ask for? In addition the opening scene is without a doubt a milestone of cinema, Jean-Pierre Melville is a master of silence. Another pretty accessible film, like most of Melville's work. I can commend this film for almost every single aspect of it, but particularly so the beginning and the ending, opting not to go for the cliché way out.
