Bullit


When a Mob witness is murdered on Lt Frank Bullitt's watch, he defiantly hides the facts and the body to give himself time to find the killers, which brings him into direct conflict with an ambitious and corrupt politician. Rubber-burning set piece director Robert Yates was hired by Steve Mcqueen for this atmospheric film, giving us one of the most famous and elaborate car-chasing scenes of the 60s. The unusual plot form and unexpected ending which leaves the viewer to connect some dots of the storyline himself, differentiate this movie from the typical "who's the killer" cop drama, while McQueen's fabled laconic cool somehow seeps into the fibres of the film itself. That means that the film has a still and silent flow which makes the action and violence occurances jarring and shocking just like they should.
