*Walter Hill in-person Nov 5
“To Save and Project”
6:30 at MoMA

“The city remains unnamed, but it’s clearly L.A. before Michael Mann made it his own, a land of existential phantoms most at home in the nocturnal sprawl. O’Neal’s softness provides an analysis of Steve McQueen, his ‘cowboy desperado’ pitted against Dern’s haunted sheriff — macho hostility is ritualized, aestheticized, etherealized, the dialogue pitched like Bresson. What’s bottled up in the characters is released behind the wheel, and Hill transforms every car showdown into wonders of abstraction”
Fernando F. Croce, Cinepassion [Read More]
