Steve McQueen's classic racing film, Le Mans (1971), was released yesterday on Blu-ray. The movie's focus on the experience of the race from the driver's seat, while deemphasizing dialog, gives it a kind of poetry and lasting quality. Just check out the beginning of the race below. Pure cinema. Robert Siegel has posted an excellent essay about the film at Blu-ray.com here. Additional Blu-ray review here. Le Mans is on sale at Amazon for $17.99 here. Vroom!
