Two Lane Black Top (1971)

(James Taylor, Dennis Wilson, Harry Dean Stanton, Warren Oates)

1971 road movie directed by Monte Hellman, starring singer-songwriter James Taylorthe Beach Boys drummer Dennis WilsonWarren Oates, and Laurie Bird

Esquire magazine declared the film its movie of the year for 1971, and even published the entire screenplay in its April 1971 issue, but the film was not a commercial success. 

Two-Lane Blacktop is notable as a time capsule film of U.S. Route 66 during the pre-Interstate Highway era, and for its stark footage and minimal dialogue. As such, it has become popular with fans of Route 66. Two-Lane Blacktop has been compared to similar road movies with an existentialist message from the era, such as Vanishing PointEasy Rider, and Electra Glide in Blue.
