Unfortunately, that's not it. It's too bad it was taken down. It was a beautiful video. Imagine if Stanley Kubrick was still alive and McLaren hired him to make a short 4min film about Bruce McLaren.

It's such an original and creative way to market a car company. Far more effective then the boring tail-sliding/burnouts/nurburgring stuff that we typically see. It also manages to destroy the whole 'McLaren has no soul' argument in a few minutes. Really well done. Beautiful and chilling at the same time.

I like that analogy, very Kubrick, very creative. Wonder why it has been taken down? Ron must be involved
in that decision!

Heat, The Insider, Collateral, Miami Vice. Some of his movies weren't the greatest but they always looked good. He could make the must mundane scene look cool. Great Eye and really good soundtracks in his films.

Agree on that. Michael Mann is The Man.
The scene from The Insider when Russell Crowe finally decides to testify and gets in the car for the ride to court is one of my all time film faves.

I missed the original video above, if anybody has a link, please do share, even if by PM, thanks.
