Le perfection.

Le Samouraï. Jean-Pierre Melville. I think this movie is extremely good. Melville is a director with style, feel, flair and panache and is not afraid to downplay things. I love Delon in this movie. His face is perfect for a role of no expressiveness. Perhaps this was where Delon shined at his best. I think this movie is beyond a doubt one of the most influential ones for many movie makers since it was made. I have watched some scenes 10 times in a row and they still move me. This is just visual poetry with a point to be made and a script to carry it. (1967)
