One of the pleasures of Le Samourai is to realize how complicated the plot has grown, in its flat, deadpan way.

Le samourai expresses a kind of loneliness to be sure, but it's that of a teenage male dreaming about Hollywood movies and their accoutrements -- penthouse apartments, acerbic cops, melancholy city streets, smoky card games, fancy jazz nightclubs.

Le Samoura´'s narrative players are designed for easy interpretation. This fosters the plot's complication, as well as Melville's inimitably stylistic filmmaking
