Vanishing Point

Friday, September 5, 2008

If this wasn't the damnedest movie. A dude has to drop off a car in San Francisco, bets a friend he can make it in a day and a half, takes a bunch of speed and drives across a few states while the cops chase him. It's basically one continuous car chase, interrupted by various strange encounters with passersby. And even though there's constant car chasing, a lot of the movie has this laid back, ambling feel to it, and then some weird existential message (or something) at its core. It's sort of like Two Lane Blacktop, but even more spare and strange, and maybe more mysterious. I'm not sure what exactly to make of this one, but I did quite enjoy it.
