Drag racing east from L.A. in a souped-up ’55 Chevy are the wayward Driver and Mechanic (singer/songwriter James Taylor and the Beach Boys’ Dennis Wilson, in their only acting roles), accompanied by a tagalong Girl (Cockfighter’s Laurie Bird). Along the way, they meet Warren Oates’s Pontiac GTO–driving wanderer and challenge him to a cross-country race—the prize: their cars’ pink slips. But no summary can do justice to the existential punch of Two-Lane Blacktop. With its gorgeous widescreen compositions and sophisticated look at American male obsession, this stripped-down narrative from maverick director Monte Hellman (The Shooting) is one of the artistic high points of 1970s cinema, and possibly the greatest road movie ever made.

This movie is kind of a dud, but the cars and scenery do take you on a trip back to memory lane. There is no plot or story line to this movie so its hard to follow. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Jim F.

It's a "car guy" movie and part of the 60's & early 70's let's explore the country lifestyle. Could hardly recall James Taylor playing the lead role; it's been 43 years!! Read morePublished 2 months ago by John
