Bullitt (1968) - San Francisco Car Chase Scene (4/10) | Movieclips

Of course, Bullitt’s reputation isn’t built on elaborate plotting so much as it is one of the great car chases in all of cinema, all of it anchored by McQueen’s unflappable cool in the face of what must have been some truly tremendous jolts to the ass. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: We would really like to see Spielberg apply his considerable skills as a technician to that sort of extended practical sequence, and Cooper definitely has the chops at this point to serve as his cold-eyed crash test dummy. No word, as of yet, though, as to when Bullitt might find itself crashing into theaters.
