The American

One of my all-time favorite films is Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Samouraï, starring Alain Delon. I wasn't expecting much from Anton Corbijn's The American, certainly not a modern take on Melville's classic. From the open scene I was transfixed. The pace, story, cinematography, and most of all the style of the film are equaled on by Le Samouraï.

Right down to the watch Clooney wears in the picture...which I'm contemplating getting...
