I like the "slow" car chase in Way of the Gun.

Probably not the best car chase scene compared to the others listed but I think it's a classic nonetheless: James Bond's Aston Martin in Goldfinger.

Plus...it is Styleforum so there should be at least one 007 reference.

the winner would be Ronin,driven by the chick from Californication no less

the only good moment in a car scene in any movie that i can actually remember is from bullit, and it is not edited. it's a far shot, low camera position, bottom of a huge hill, a horizontal street near in front of the camera, a road ascending up the hill in front of the camera. badguy car comes down hill, makes a left turn (screen right) drives off frame. goodguy car follows down hill, and as he makes his own left turn onto the road, a civilian car enters screen left rapidly, forcing goodguy to turnskid out of its way but still complete the turn

as for movies, i remember enjoying the chases in to live and die in la (didn't one of the chases spill into some long concrete irrigation ditch/structure) though the best scene in that is towards the end when he realizes his girlfriend screwed him

i also recall a long car chase in matrix reloaded

we own the night has one set in a rainstorm

Ronin, hells yea. There needs to be a poal on this. The fact that there is no dialogue in the chase scene makes it 100x better.

I'm not sure what that qualifies as, but yeah, it was a very tense scene. Excellent.

The chase scene in Terminator 3 was pretty good, if for no other reason than the epic destruction.

+1 Good call. That was an underrated movie overall.

I don't know if this is true or not, but a professor once told me that one of the car crashes in that scene was an unplanned collision with some random driver who just happened to be in the way.

Good one! They had to build their own stretch of highway to film this.
