Conceived as an homage to Jean-Pierre Melville this is arguably Walter Hill's best film. Like most of Melville's films this places a criminal loner center stage. Hill goes one further: none of the characters have names. They are simply 'the driver', 'the cop' and 'the girl' and as played by Ryan O'Neal, Bruce Dern and Isabelle Adjani respectively, that's enough. The dialogue is sparse - Ryan O'Neal's character only says 350 words in the entire movie - and the cars are as fast as the mood is lean.

The posters for this movie are also great. I never knew Ryan O'Neal since I wasn't born when he was an icon or sex symbol. And so far he was great in Barry Lyndon(a bit awkward at times), and OWNED The Driver far before Ryan Gosling existed. His style was simplistic(dress shirt 3 …
