le Samoraï

I am not a huge Alain Delon fan but this is the perfect role for him. The movie is even more formalistic than the title would lead you to believe. Direction is arty but in a good way, art direction is lucid and performances are very good. The editing is flawless. So I guess I liked it. Several police-procedural sequences are both surreal and fascinating. The literal-minded among us will find much to be aggravated by, but that is one of the charms.
