Le Samourai (Jean-Pierre Melville, 1967)

 
 







Notice the girl in the painting looking impassively (disapprovingly?) over his shoulder as he shoots the club owner.

Trivia fans: Melville was the director's code name while fighting with the resistance during WW2. He chose it after his favourite author, Herman, and kept it as a stage name after the war.
