50th Anniversary Screening.
In a career-defining performance, Alain Delon plays a contract, semi-schizophrenic killer with samurai instincts. A razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American gangster cinema and 1960s French pop culture—with a liberal dose of Japanese lone-warrior mythology—maverick director Jean-Pierre Melville's masterpiece Le Samouraï defines cool. Melville’s best-known film has influenced many filmmakers since its release. 35mm print courtesy of the Institut Français. Special thanks to the Cultural Services of the French Embassy. In French with English subtitles. (35mm Presentation)
