Redemption Beneath a Dirty Hood: "Two-Lane Blacktop" at the Webster Film Series

In the current cinematic era, the Car Film is most often a glossy, vacuous entertainment that wallows in fast and furious absurdity and juvenile conceptions of masculinity. It was not always so. The New Hollywood upheaval of the 1960s and 70s—and in particular the galvanizing effect of "Bonnie and Clyde" and "Easy Rider" on the road movie form—paved the way for a brief but vital zenith for the Car Film. The apogee of this moment, and arguably the finest film ever made about the act of driving, is Monte Hellman’s 1971 road picture "Two-Lane Blacktop."
