In a career-defining performance, Alain Delon plays Jef Costello, a contract killer with samurai instincts. After carrying out a flawlessly planned hit, Jef 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.Le Samouraï featuring Alain Delon and François Périer is streaming with subscription on HBO MAX, streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, streaming with subscription on Kanopy, and 4 others. It's a crime and drama movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 8.1 (44,710 votes) and was very well received by critics.
