It came nowhere close to the numbers on Easy Rider, but it is so much more worthwhile as a film. Indeed, I'm going to push my luck and say there has never been a better film about sweaters.

The ultimate road movie and one of the great American movies of the 1970s.

As a study in obsession and emotional dislocation Two-Lane Blacktop is in a class of its own.

"Two-Lane Blacktop" prompts a dialogue of uncertain expectation with its audience.

... a quiet, existential masterpiece that has turned into a bonafide cult classic.

Little White Lies

even if the Driver and co. are just passin' through, they encapsulate a whole generation lost in the rootless, directionless '70s, scorching the viewer's retina with their quest for nothing.

Lessons of Darkness

Captures an aura of existential despondence that's married to a far less evocative (and durable) strain of counterculture romantic doom.

Much more about the journey and the thrill of being a racer as it is about races...

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

What Two-Lane Blacktop pronounces in its visuals, limited dialogue, and willfully underdeveloped characters remains largely superficial, yet its silence and patience indicate much depth.

Two-Lane Blacktop is a movie of achingly eloquent landscapes and absurdly inert characters.

The strange and sometimes pathetic world of barnstorming, hustling street-racing is explored with feeling by director-editor Monte Hellman.

This exciting existentialist road movie by Monte Hellman, with a swell script by Rudolph Wurlitzer and Will Corry and my favorite Warren Oates performance, looks even better now than it did in 1971.

Oates gives a compelling performance and musicians Taylor and Wilson supply the right degree of drifter cool.

This is not a film about narrative but loneliness and life on the road, which it captures with a mysterious brilliance.
