Flick Pick: Bullitt

(Warner Bros., 1968)

This movie left skidmarks on the prior attempts at the crime chase/action genre, including the original and still greatest car chase ever filmed, featuring Steve McQueen as the absolute king of cool, and one of the toughest anti-hero cops in cinematic history, who handles fast cars, beautiful women, and untangles a mob hit, while firing only three rounds in the entire movie, and only a few more words. There is more testosterone packed into this movie than can be found in entire Ivy-league colleges, most days.
