Even a claustrophobic vision is preferable to none at all, and I want to like Hill's movies. But The Driver is almost impossible to travel with.

Hill has remained a steadily stylish presence in the idiom of action cinema. His genres of concern tend to be the Western and the urban crime drama, and the twain meet in neo-noir The Driver. [Blu-ray]

A terrific neo-noir that was sadly dumped by its studio in the summer of 1978. Filled with exciting car chases and cynical, hard-boiled exchanges.
| Original Score: 4/5

An all-time great action movie. Hill's existential musings are made palpable with the soulful performances by O'Neal and Adjani.

Bruce Dern, merely one of the best actors of the 1970s, is in his element here as an arrogant cop with a Cheshire-cat grin.
