Earlier today I saw Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Samouraï on 35mm film. I got in for seven dollars. Many of you know, this film hella rare, so this was a wonderful opportunity. Unforgettable. It was at a place where film is taken seriously, it's quiet, no bullshit kiddies crying because they want their fucking M&M's or whatever, silence...peace and quiet. The curtain opened, and a masterpiece was projected onto the screen. I watched in awe....for about five minutes, then a couple decided to show up late and obstruct my view trying to get in my row. Fuckin amateurs. At least I got in the theater fine and got my concessions okay (see my Godfather/Alien posts😏) Anyway, Alain Delon might just be the coolest person...ever! This film is slick, using little dialogue, a story told though mostly action and we have a great director named Jean-Pierre Melville to thank for that.
The musical score, oh my god it's wonderful. This films influence on León is very clear, and I fucking love that. Two extraordinary Hitman films. Anyway, this isn't exactly a review, I just felt like sharing my dope ass experience. Y'all know how great this film is, and if you haven't seen it I'm sure you've had multiple fellow cinephiles shove it down your throat 24/7. Watch it, Le Samouraï won't let you down. Yeah. Apocalypto review coming at ya later. #lesamouraï #lesamourai #jeanpierremelville #alaindelon #france #frenchcinema #thesamurai #A1 #SugarDaddy #noir #thefilmfreakshow
