Léon: The Professional

Emmy says:
A strangely romantic movie of corruption and killing. Highly enjoyable with simple costuming and nuanced acting. 8/10.

I have always remembered this movie fondly – even affectionately. There are moments that are now more uncomfortable to watch than they were in 1993, but it is still a brilliant film. Jean Reno is at his best, and for a debut performance Natalie Portman was incredible. Danny Aiello and Gary Oldman are also superb – Oldman’s disturbed villain is rightly praised. The soundtrack was fantastic. This is how I found out who Luc Besson was, and why that mattered. 8/10.
