The Driver now carries an arrogant rock star who is visiting a major city (not Pittsburgh as earlier believed). Played by Madonna, this title character wants to get away from her bodyguards in the Driver's BMW. He soon gets tired of her and decides to have a bit of fun.Written by
"Star" is a short film made for BMW by Guy Ritchie, who also directed two other reasonably good movies, "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch." Although she isn't credited as the star, Ritchie's wife Madonna plays what seems to be the lead role in this film, a stuck-up celebrity rock star. Clive Owen plays the driver who grants Madonna's wish to escape her bodyguards by taking her on the ride of her life. The scenes where the BMW car is speeding around town are more than exciting to watch and the soundtrack in the background, mostly "Song 2" by Blur is an excellent addition to the intense atmosphere. I recommend to anyone who enjoyed Ritchie's other work or even to Madonna fans to log onto bmwfilms.com and check out this 7 minute thrill ride.
