This film was obviously a big inspiration for Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive, especially the first scene and the Driver character.
Lean plot, effective action pieces and cool archetypal characters make this a good example of the neo-noir genre.It lacks, however, the existential urgency or the social dimension of the best films of the genre.
A tough low fat movie to be discovered for fans of drama and action.
