The Driver

Walter Hill USA, 1978

Malkin's rating of the film Driver

The car chase as hunt. The wail of police sirens is the cry of some great predatory bird of prey; the strikingly blue headlights, the eyes of a crocodile or a hyena by night. The cars themselves seem to prowl, more alive than the resigned fatalists and compulsive thrill-seekers inside them, who drift through their neat, sleek lives as though they were protracted heists. An influence on Mann more than Refn, I think.
