NOT the greatest chase ever...
while the car chase in bullitt is indeed notable, it is surely not the greatest chase scene in cinema history! that honor would unquestionably go to the edge-of-your-seat chase sequence in "psycho from Texas". albeit, that's actually a footchase through swampy brush, but it makes the screeching cars on the streets of san francisco in 1968's bullitt pale in comparison! i can truly say, without hesitation, that i've never spent 30 minutes so riveted as i did when i watched slick and mr phillips have a battle of endurance and wits in "psycho from Texas", the greatest American film ever made...edging out "citizen kane". in addition, steve mcqueen's performance as frank bullitt comes off as amateurish when held up against the white-hot, blazing sun that is john king iii's portrayal of wheeler, easily the most engaging character ever recorded on film. in conclusion, yes, bullitt is a fine piece of Hollywood magic, but if you truly want a visceral experience, watch "psycho from Texas"...a film of epic proportions...and the soundtrack is the tops!
hot damn! a real feast for the senses!
whew! i just finished this tour-de-force of a picture show! there is most definitely no character in the history of cinema who stands as grand as wheeler. he has more moxie than a fox in a rat trap! nothing can complete with this character who enjoys some kfc at a local tavern while forcing the waitress to put on an alluring strip show. in addition, the soundtrack or "wheeler's theme" is the tops! i didn't know whether to laugh or cry, but i was certainly glued to my davenport! oh, and his pilgrim hat is the benchmark in fashion...i only i could find the store where he got that....! in closing, this moving picture show was fraught with thrills and chills...i nearly wet my trousers!
