Sound On Sight Radio #235: This Gun For Hire

- Advertisement -

Assassin. Hitman. Contract killer. Call it what you will, it’s an archetype both familiar and fascinating to film fans. Provided, of course, that you accept the conceit that they’re all debonair, high-skilled murder magicians rather than project kids with meth mouth and 2-litre pop bottles taped to stolen handguns. But hey, that’s why we watch movies instead of hanging out by downtown subway stations after midnight. Tonight, Sound on Sight takes a look at three films about assassins: Luc Besson’s 1994 film The Professional, 1976’s Le Samourai, and this weekend’s comic book adaptation Red.
