Visual History with Walter Hill

Interviewed by: Robert Markowitz

Walter Hill developed his craft as a screenwriter and director while working as a second assistant director on Bullitt, Take the Money and Run, and The Thomas Crown Affair.

Hill feels the best movies are the ones that are strongly directed.

Storytelling in Westerns differs from other films because they are essentially "Old Testament" morality tales.

Hill talks about his approach to choreographing action sequences and reflects on action films in general.
