Bullitt ★★★★

Bullitt is an excellent cop drama that is escalated by its neat cinematography, detailed storytelling and a well structured plot. Steven McQueen is effortlessly charming and perfectly captures his character. The car chase is so iconic that people tend to forget how well put together the film is. It's a masterclass in tension building and the entire climax is very well directed.

And, of course, it isn't hard to see why the car chase is iconic. I'm pretty sure that it revolutionised the way chases can be shot and everything from the camerawork to sound design are remarkable especially for its time period. It nearly flawless, engaging throughout, and a precursor to nearly every cop film ever made since.

P.S. So hyped for the Spielberg directed Bullitt starring Bradley Cooper. Just can't wait.
