Which are some of the best movies of Steve McQueen?
Steve McQueen (actor): Which are some of the best movies of Steve McQueen?Shashank Shankar gave a pretty good list so I will make a quick comment and add a couple. The Magnificent Seven is my favorite movie on his list, but oddly enough, I don't really classify that film as a Steve McQueen film. M7 is truly an ensemble piece, it is a film that Steve McQueen is in, not a Steve McQueen film...if you know what I mean.I would add The Getaway (1972 film) to the list. This was directed by Sam Peckinpah and was based on a novel by Jim Thompson (writer). While this film was not Peckinpah's grittiest and it certainly was not nearly as dark as the source material, it was McQueen's most morally ambiguous role.Many people like Bullitt. I find the movie as a whole rather middling, but the car chase scenes are truly classics.

Simply unprecedented.As much as Steve McQueen can make magic out of immobility, he is also an innovator with moving shots. Here is another scene he is famous for - the jogging scene in Shame:
