Tonight's Movie: Le Samourai

There is no greater solitude than the samurai's, except perhaps the sommelier who has the perfect pairing he cannot talk about.

If you want to learn about yourself, read a novel. If you want to learn about change, drink wine. And if you want to learn about how other people change, watch a movie.

Tonight I'll watch a movie.

This movie is from the director who professed an ambition to become immortal and then die. And I'd say he got his wish.

From 1967, and Jean-Pierre Melville, an elemental atmosphere and a wounded male marble sculpture named Jeff Costello.

Watch this movie or find a good alibi.
