MY HIT LIST: THE DRIVER

Trailer
The Cast: The Driver, The Cop, The Player. Existential thriller from the severley under rated Walter Hill. Unsung and excellent. Ryan O'Neal has never been better. Bruce Dern is the obsessive Cop and Isabelle Adjani the Dame. Michael Mann must have watched this 1978 movie; you can see it in his work, especially HEAT. Other characters are also cyphers; Teeth, Glasses, The Connection, Fingers and Split. It's a cold movie set in a neon lit LA but it has a hypnotic quality and is a fine example of a precursor to the style of many of Hollywood's creative stylists
