The cult classic that inspired Nicholas Wynding Ref’s Ryan Gosling-starring hit DRIVE, now restored in 4K.
Ryan O'Neal plays a get-away driver. Bruce Dern plays the relentless detective who sets out to trap him and Isabelle Adjani plays the mysterious gambler who goes along for the thrill of the game. It is a tale of confrontation between two men of iron will. Each of the characters is the best at what they do; each is committed to a lifestyle that thrives on competition. The Driver is more than just another chase picture. It is a film where the chase is a way of life, winning is a means of survival and playing is the whole point of the exercise.
Hill’s 1978 neo-noir has been cited by many modern visionaries including Quentin Tarantino, Nicolas Winding Refn, and Edgar Wright as inspiration on their work.
