A getaway driver becomes the latest assignment for a tenacious detective.
Body Count: 5.
How've you been?
Fingers: I'm okay.
Glasses: You two know each other?
Fingers: A couple of years ago we worked a two-car job.
The Driver: You already have a driver.
Teeth: He doesn't have the balls for driving anymore.
Glasses: You work for a piece, right?
The Driver: Ten thousand up front, against fifteen percent.
After the bank job, when the Driver is escaping in the red truck, the camera is reflected in the glass of the truck's back window. It's on a tripod in the truck bed, covered with a blanket.
At Los Angeles's American Cinemateque, a 131 minute version of "The Driver" was shown. While it does add insights to some characters in the story, this longer version features many more car chases.
