"I live for myself and I answer to nobody." - Steve McQueen


  1. I'm a big fan of Mcqueen myself, he is a true role model. I just recently found Bullitt on dvd in the bargain bin for $3 which, stylistically and dramatically, is one of my favorite movies besides the Thomas Crown Affair. I like some of his westerns, but they don't compare to his more urban films.

  2. David - For my money it's Thomas Crown for style obviously and for entertainment value I'd go with The Great Escape. But yeah, Bullit's car chase, well...I guess it's all been said already.
