Two-Lane Blacktop Review


Excellent
Two-Lane Blacktop came out the year I was born, so I can only imagine the duel it must have fought with Vanishing Point, a nearly identical -- though ultimately less satisfying -- romp across American in a fast car. This time we're given two nameless drag racers (James Taylor and Warren Oates) kicking each other's butts as they jet from small town to small town en route to the finish line in Washington D.C.4, with a couple of side characters in tow. The ending is an infamous classic "what the!?" moment in film history. Check out the DVD for commentary from Monte Hellman that attempts to explain it.
