With that side smile and nervous laugh, Bruce Dern remains instantly recognizable, yet he was rarely cast as the star and nearly always as the villain. He has appeared in more than 100 films over six decades, imbuing his roles with weight and humanity. In The Driver, getaway driver (Ryan O’Neal) has become an obsession of a detective (Dern), who enlists the help of a player (Isabelle Adjani) to ensnare him. Oft imitated but never matched, Hill’s stylish and innovative film showcases Dern’s acting as much as the car chases. MON-TUES, 7 & 9 PM. 8 PM.
