Bullitt ★★★

Alas Bullitt, I tried. You even got a rise out of me during your iconic car chase scene and in the tense climax at the airport. Unfortunately I just didn’t care much about your mission. I don’t know if it’s me or you. Take comfort that you have plenty of admirers even if you didn’t make the 1001 Movies to See Before You Die list. You definitely made Edgar Wright’s 1000 favorite films list though. Clearly you inspired his own Baby Driver which I’d take a ride over you any day. 

Watched as part of the TURNER CLASSICS MOVIES film festival on HBOMAX.
