Crime! Film 4: Le Samouraï [The Samurai] (France, Jean-Pierre Melville,1967). After he is seen by witnesses, a lone contract killer has to find a series of alibis, a task that is made harder by the fact that he is next on his own boss’s hit list. A stylised masterpiece of cool that combines 1940s gangster cinema with 1960s pop culture, held together with a samurai’s instinct. (In French with English subtitles).
