Merged the appeal of Bullitt with that of, say, Zabriskie Point...fast cars and dusty existentialism. [Blu-ray]

should be seen as a particularly charged variant of a now extinct genre: the artsy B-movie

The action is almost entirely made up of one man driving a car at maximum speed from Denver to, hopefully, San Francisco.

A film all but overflowing with the revolting spirit of the oppressed. Bring the noise!

In a time when vacant retreads such as The Fast and the Furious are the problem, Vanishing Point is the answer.

Really nothing but a one hundred minute car chase across country, and I loved every minute of it...

The last quarter of Grindhouse was little more than a love note to this flick's towering excellence.

A fairly interesting, but somewhat muddled, road movie starring Newman as an ex-cop who now drives cars from Denver to San Francisco for a living.

The woodenness of both direction and Newman's performance becomes increasingly apparent.

A movie about which I can think of almost nothing good to say.

Takes full advantage of the subject's existential and mythical undertones without being pretentious, and you certainly get a run for your money, along with a lot of rock music.
