The Driver

Directed by Walter Hill

A cult classic cited as a significant influence by directors including Quentin Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Nicolas Winding Refn, The Driver stars Ryan O’Neal as a getaway driver whose exceptional talent has prevented him being caught, but has also attracted the attentions of a relentless detective played by Bruce Dern.

A neo-noir thriller set in the dark streets of downtown LA, The Driver tells the tale of a confrontation between two men of iron will, and features some of the greatest car chases in cinema history.
