Lambcast #572 MOTM Le Samourai

by Richard Kirkham · February 23, 2021 · Featured, LAMBcast, MOTM, Podcasts · No Comments

February was Richard’s Birthday Month and it has become a tradition here for the hosts of the show to select the choices up for Movie of the Month at that time. There were eight options and the Lamb community chose the one blindspot on Richard’s list. It turns out that it was also new to some of the other guests on the show as well.

The stylish and deliberately paced Le Samourai from Jean-Pierre Melville is mostly admired by our crew this week, The line up of suspects to talk about it include: Nick Rehak, Todd Liebenow, James Wilson and Lisa LeaHeey.

We cover characters, plot, the look of the film, hell we even spent some time discussing the score. There are plenty of reasons that this is a seminal film in the genre and in the world of French Cinema. You should take a while to join us and find out what they all are.
