The Driver

Saw Walter Hill’s #TheDriver. Existential taciturnity alternates w’ amazing analogue car chases. Pure genre, w’ intimations.

#TheDriver. Bruce Dern, up to his usual shenanigans. Is that the actual Ms. Adjani, actually looking terrified during the climactic car chase?

#TheDriver. Pretty clearly inspired by J.P Melville. I think I see Michael Mann, just a few years up ahead there. Not to mention N.W. Refn …

… Hats off to these contemporaries, but I’ll take the Frenchman, or this crafty/classy assembly of grittily un-enhanced urban settings.
