Basically this film is about being cool. This is the most cool film, because how literally cool it is, the main character, Jef Costello, never cracks up, never loses his temper, never gets nervous, even in the most heated situations. The characters are so in Melville's fictional world, so far from any reality. But if he wasn't going for reality, but instead a very stylized film, he succeeded. Making the coolest film ever made, and making Alain Delon the coolest man in the planet.
Also including Le Cercle Rouge, by Melville.

Basically every film about a hitman is just so cool. IMO, this is not a perfect film, however, even though I don't like Tom Cruise, I thought he gave such a great performance. Vincent is just so cool and a badass. Also he's pretty philosophical and funny too, so he's cool, badass and likeable, what's not to like?
