"...An austere poem of crime, a fatalistic exercise in myth-making and transcendent style..." Los Angeles Times "...The film is masterful in its control of acting and visual style....LE SAMOURAI is as finished and polished as a film can be..." Chicago Sun-Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "With minimal amounts of violence but maximum style....Simply, the coolest film ever." Rolling Stone "Melville's 1968 masterpiece....Minimal dialogue, a spare and moody jazz score and images drained of any color warmer than blue steel contribute to an overwhelming sense of repression and control." New York Times 4 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's a nigh perfectly constructed film, and its finale remains one of the most stunning yet enigmatic twists ever committed to celluloid." Premiere24.56658

"[A] slow-burning thriller....THE AMERICAN's muted pleasures rest heavily on the sustained air of mystery around Clooney, and Corbijn, a pristine stylist, keeps the atmosphere nice and thick." -- Grade: BA.V. Club 4 stars out of 4 -- "Every performance is tightly controlled. Clooney is in complete command of his effect."Chicago Sun-Times "[A]dmirable for its defiance and acidity....It's mature, fastidiously logical with exposition, and patient..."Sight and Sound "[A] contemplative thriller....Watching Clooney wander toward his character's lost self is one of the great pleasures of the movie."Movieline 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] stylish throwback to the existential crime thrillers of the '70s."Total Film 5 stars out of 5 -- "[Corbijn] takes the thriller genre and -- far from proving a safe pair of hands -- elevates it to the level of poetry."Uncut 3 stars out of 5 -- "Corbijn enjoys silence and master shots -- the slow-build over the whizz-bang. There are some terrific scenes..."Empire "[I]t's a very different, more removed Clooney than audiences are used to seeing....It's a much more interior performance than usual, a dark, withdrawn role that completely avoids the actors' usual high-wattage smile..."Los Angeles Times "[An] elegantly crafted existential thriller....[Clooney] keeps you attentive, and the drama's seriousness finally earns your respect."Wall Street Journal "Dutch director Anton Corbijn, working from a script by Rowan Joffe, holds his film to a steady, often glacial pace....A film of startling austerity."Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "The film has a contemplative allure, unfolding at a deliberate pace....Clooney plays the enigmatic title character with mature confidence."USA Today Included in Roger Ebert's "The Best Films of 2010" -- "The film sees dispassionately, guards its secrets, and ends like a clockwork mechanism arriving at its final, clarifying tick."Chicago Sun-Times "Much of the film's expressive currency is committed to procedural patience, in the tradition of Jean-Pierre Melville's stoic studies of underworld industry."Film Comment0.2159439
