Le Samouraï ★★★★½

- 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die -

There's one word that can describe this whole film and that's, “classy”.

From start to finish of the 1h 47m run time, it's full of pure class and suspense. It's slow pace and minimal dialogue gave it a certain edge that not many other films can provide. The cinematography was beautiful, from the framing to the colour palette. It all looked gorgeous. I don't know if it was just the style at the time but It was reminding me very much of Jaques Tati's PlayTime (which isn't a bad thing what so ever). The score was borderline perfect. It's almost too good to be real.
