Jean-Pierre Melville is best known for making low-key film noirs, many of them becoming classics within the nouvelle-vague category of movies. One of these is the 1967 “Le Samouraï” starring the incredibly famous actor Alain Delon in the role of the hitman Jef Costello. It starts the day after Delon’s character who lives by the strict code of the samuraï, having carried out a perfectly planned assassination. Even with an impenetrable alibi, the investigator refuses to stop chasing the Parisian rōnin as his main suspect.
Melville masterfully slices up the classic cat-and-mouse movie and stuffs it with ‘60s French imagery, with Alain Delon wearing the armor of raincoat-and-fedora in his break-out role.
