The Driver


35mm print.With Ryan O’Neal, Bruce Dern, and Isabelle Adjani. This lean, existential thriller about a getaway driver pursued by a manic cop is one of the finest examples of neo-noir. As Kehr writes, “the rhythms of The Driver resemble the classic construction of a Howard Hawks film: dialogue alternated with action, the tensions created in a static scene exploding into movement in the next scene, to be either resolved or exaggerated.”
