In this oddly haunting action thriller, a man known only as “The Driver” (Ryan O’Neal) is a master getaway specialist for a thieves’ organization. He receives word of his jobs from “The Connection” (Ronee Blakely) and gets his alibis from “The Gambler” (Isabelle Adjani). He is followed by a high-strung police detective (Bruce Dern), who really wants to nail him. Many spectacular car chases are one of the highlights of this movie, which paradoxically has a quiet, reflective tone. This is Isabelle Adjani’s first American film.
