Favorite Movie EverThe Professional! This film is so rich with talent and complexity. The relationship between Leon and Mathilda...he's like a father, but also like a lover. The ambiguity is provocative and perfectly balanced. The irony in that Mathilda is a precocious child wise beyond her years and Leon is a child trapped in the body of a man..a killer. Stansfield's insanity. And also the balance and contrast between emotion and violence/action. Incredible movie!
