Regrets

Posted at 6:19 PM on September 12, 2007 by Euan Kerr (2 Comments)

I watched "Le Samourai" last night, Jean-Pierre Melville's 1967 genre-bending homage to samurai movies and film noir. It's a remarkable piece starring Alain Delon as a Paris hitman lost in the underworld and within himself.

Now I am truly regretting that I didn't get to see the recent screenings of the refurbished print of Melville's "Army of Shadows."

It pays to strike when the cinematic iron is hot.

Was
"Ghost Dog:Way of the Samurai" inspired by this movie?

You know, I was wondering about that myself. I'll check it out.
