Filmhouse Steve McQueen screens selection of actor's finest films
Papillon, Love with the Proper Stranger and Bullit among highlights
Steve McQueen in Bullit
Arguably the coolest American screen actor of the last 50 years, McQueen gets his six of the best to help us make it through another damp August. Highlights include brutal prison drama Papillon, Love with the Proper Stranger – actor/director Robert Mulligan’s misguided but interesting attempt to make an American kitchen sink set in the early 1960’s underground jazz scene – and, of course, Bullitt. Ticket deals available.
