On the road, again and again

Gentlemen, start your engines.

Gentlemen, start your engines.

Over at Alex on Film I’ve added my notes on three classic counterculture road movies: Easy Rider (1969), Vanishing Point (1971), and Two-Lane Blacktop (1971). Easy Rider is the best known today, but mostly for its historical significance. It’s really not a very good movie, though still watchable. Vanishing Point I find the most interesting. Two-Lane Blacktop has Warren Oates as GTO, and not much else going for it. But that’s enough.
