Aro Favourite Two-Lane Blacktop


USA 1971, 103 minutes
Dir. Monte Hellman
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Cult / Road Movie

Topics: Petrolheads.


Aroview: Ambling across a relentless roadscape of diners and gas stations, young petrol-heads James Taylor (yes, the pop singer) and Dennis Wilson (yes, the Beach Boy) face a challenge to race middle-aged braggart Warren Oates.

Much less than EASY RIDER on four wheels, and yet much more, it takes a detour from incident to explore the desolate, hypnotic rhythms of the Trans-American highway, and as such is a signature cult film of the early seventies.
