What would movies be without cars? Their metallic bodies spark fantasy and desire, and they thrill and terrify with reckless speed. Cars provide an intimate conversational space, a means to make a living, or simply the best way to get from here to there. Our series takes a look across the decades at crime cars, race cars, chauffeured cars, working cars, and just plain cool cars. Enjoy the ride!
