TWO-LANE BLACKTOP
1971, Universal, 101 min, USA, Dir: Monte Hellman

Two motorheads in a supercharged Chevy (singer James Taylor and Beach Boy Dennis Wilson) take on Warren Oates and his monstrous Pontiac GTO in a cross-country race. Haunted by the vast, open spaces of the Midwest and an addictive sense of speed, TWO-LANE BLACKTOP is the essential American road movie - Hellman calls it "the last movie of the ’60s." One of the amazing things about the film is its Bressonian simplicity in placing its protagonists in a universe stripped down for maximum velocity to an astonishingly bleak and lonely microcosm - the hard, spartan interiors of Taylor’s and Oates’ cars. With Laurie Bird.
