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 CONtv (Via Prime Video), streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, streaming with subscription on Kanopy, and 4 others. It's a crime and drama movie with a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 100% and a high IMDb audience rating of 8.1 (41,471 votes).
