(1971) Directed by Monte Hellman. James Taylor, Dennis Wilson, Warren Oates. (103 min.)

Part of the Car Crazy film series. A souped-up ’55 Chevy driven by 22-year-old James Taylor and Beach Boy Dennis Wilson challenges a mysterious muscle car to a cross-country race. The journey is more important than the destination in this haunting existentialist L’Avventura with a GTO.

“The purest American road movie, ever… like a drive-in movie directed by a French new wave director” (director Richard Linklater).

Introduced by NCSU Film Studies professor Devin Orgeron.
