(1968) Directed by Peter Yates. Steve McQueen, Robert Vaughn, Jacqueline Bisset. (114 min.)
Part of the Car Crazy film series. Lt. Frank Bullitt, stoic and incorruptible, is tasked by an ambitious politician with protecting a mob witness stashed in San Francisco’s shadows. A grungy, neorealist procedural, Bullitt ignites during an unforgettable 150 mph duel between a Dodge Charger and Steve McQueen’s Mustang, sailing over the Fog City’s hills.
“Yates’s taut, realistic direction encapsulates the prevailing cinematic brand of late 1960s cool” (BBC).
