Wacky photo #1: BULLIT


Do you remember the car chase in the 1968 movie Bullit? It’s a landmark of movie history, as far as car chases are concerned. The movie has also immense artistic values. It’s excruciating realistic, to the point of using a real medical crew in a real hospital to depict the procedures during surgery. It won an Oscar for the editing, which is the most important aspect to the narrative and pace of any picture. The soundtrack is breathtaking. Finally, along with the realism, there’s style everywhere, featuring wonderful actors like Steve McQueen, Jaqueline Bisset, Robert Vaughn, Robert Duvall and Norman Fell, just to name a few.
