Two-Lane Blacktop

Directed by Monte Hellman
United States, 1971
Drama

Synopsis

Drag racing east from L.A. in a souped-up ‘55 Chevy are the wayward Driver and Mechanic, accompanied by a tagalong Girl. Monte Hellman’s look at American male obsession is one of the artistic high points of 1970s cinema, and possibly the greatest road movie ever.
