A great analysis of that sequence. A favorite film, but I had not understood the brilliance underlying the techniques used. For the longest time, I was under the impression that a stunt man was killed in that last motorcycle crash – not sure where that rumor came from. Good to know Duffy Hambleton survived — that stunt sure looks like it went out of control.

Hey, some of you guys are taking things way too seriously. I think the piece is great because it points out some things that had psychological impact but I hadn’t made the conscious connection to technique. That doesn’t mean anyone should rush right out and copy it. Besides, I saw this first-run in the theater when I was in high school. It was pretty good stuff back then.


I’ll have to wait till I get home to watch this. The way you guys are snarking on it – now I have to.

Ah… now I understand.

He draws this conclusion about a culture from 3 lackluster films.

And uses a 40 year old lackluster film to prove his point.

No, how were they?
