Le Samouraï

Le Samouraï ★★★★★

this movie was fairly close to perfect for me. i loved the use of silence in conjunction with the panning shots, the minimal dialogue, and the intriguing character of Jef Costello. the movie proves that suspense is built by delaying action, and it, being something of an early art-house film, manages to create a unique, almost romantic atmosphere simultaneously.
