The New Hollywood Series: Walter Hill’s The Driver




Event Details


The proud papa to BABY DRIVER, Walter Hill’s cosmically underrated THE DRIVER is a lean n’ mean crime machine, full of the finest vehicular action this side of the 20th century.

An extremely tough, pared-to-the-bone noir, vastly underrated on its initial release, THE DRIVER pits existential getaway driver Ryan O’Neal against pitbull detective Bruce Dern in a cat-and-mouse pursuit through the wasted underbelly of mid-’70s Los Angeles. Walter Hill’s homage to Jean-Pierre Melville and the Euro crime film offers spectacular car chases and, in her first Hollywood film, Isabelle Adjani.
