The Day of the Jackal (1973, dir. Fred Zinnemann)

1963. An international hitman is hired to assassinate Charles de Gaulle; a manhunt ensues. A meticulous and clinical film, almost documentary in its approach, which expertly captures – and in some areas improves on – the bestseller its based upon. Highly recommended.
