Le Samourai (Jean-Pierre Melville – 1967) A-

I really think this movie would’ve even worked better had it been a silent film. Melville fills this movie with so many fantastic long dialogue-free shots (starting from the opening shot in the apartment) that really are a pleasure to watch with or without sound. Alain Delon also creates a man of few words, and assassin seemingly obsessed with looking perfectly groomed all the time while trying to figure out who hired and is trying to kill him.
