LE SAMOURAÏ

aka THE GODSON
France, Italy | 1967 | Jean-Pierre Melville

LE SAMOURAÏ

Alain Delon plays a solitary, mostly silent contract killer in this spare, stylish Jean-Pierre Melville masterpiece that has influenced filmmakers from Martin Scorsese and Jim Jarmusch to John Woo, who once called it “the closest thing to a perfect movie that I have ever seen.” Wanted by both his employers and the police, this hit man has only one “friend”—the woman who witnessed his crime. “A razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American gangster cinema and 1960s French pop culture—with a liberal dose of Japanese lone-warrior mythology.” –Janus Films. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 105 min.
