Directed by Jean-Pierre Melville
(France, 1967, 105 min., in French with English subtitles, digital restoration)
Saturday, July 20, 7:00 p.m. (B)
Sunday, July 21, 5:00 p.m. (B)

In a career-defining performance, Alain Delon plays a contract killer with samurai instincts. After carrying out a flawlessly planned hit, he finds himself caught between a persistent police investigator and a ruthless employer, and not even his armor of fedora and trench coat can protect him. An elegantly stylized masterpiece of cool by maverick director Jean Pierre Melville, Le samouraï is a razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American gangster cinema and 1960s French pop culture—with a liberal dose of Japanese lone-warrior mythology.
