I’ve watched a number of car chases in my movie-knowing years and they usually don’t leave much of an impression except “wham! bam! ka-pow! eeyore!”, with the occasional wow (re: The Italian Job(s), The Bourne Identity). The one I just watched in The Bourne Supremacy is a keeper — I finally watched a car chase with heart and sadness, a car chase with emotional impact. Kudos. And I liked what the director Paul Greengrass had to say about car chases and all chases in general — the people involved should find meaning in the end. Movies, music, magic.
