Seeing Walter Hill's 1978 The Driver again, after many years, has re-confirmed precisely how much Nicholas Refn borrowed from the former.
Seen on Blu-ray for the first time from Fox, via Twilight Time, The Driver is a superb Blu-ray experience.
Color, resolution, film grain, black levels and shadow detail all come together to provide a very cinematic looking home theater offering.
At only 89 minutes, the film is a taut, neo-noirish piece, and as photographed around (mostly) downtown LA by the great Philip Lathrop (look him up, please), it's a generally gritty work.
Very nice work from Fox.
