Le samouraï 11/11/17

The Criterion Collection

Jean-Pierre Melville’s now-classic tale of an emotionless killer is distilled to a narrative minimum. Alain Delon stars as Jef Costello, an imperturbable, ultra- slick hit man who follows a strict personal code. When a contract goes bad, he’s caught between irreconcilable compulsions. Following this Zen-like assassin through the mean streets of Paris never seems to get old. On Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
