Bullitt
Robert Duvall and Steve McQueen may be the names on the poster, but the real star of the show is the 1968 Mustang GT that McQueen’s character drives throughout the movie, often to brilliant effect. The plot is solid enough: a police officer tasked with protecting a key witness from a pair of mob hitmen in 1968 San Francisco. However, the real reason to watch this is a hair-raising car chase that ranks among the best ever filmed. The setting—the hilly streets of the Bay Area—is used to great effect, and the soundtrack plays perfectly against the action on the screen. This is, if possible, the car chase as high art, and should be treated as such. Take a moment and really appreciate McQueen’s effortless cool.
