"Vanishing Point"

What if Hollywood made an entire movie out of a car chase? In "Vanishing Point," that's exactly what they did. The movie is an homage to American muscle car enthusiasts, with our hero, Kowalski, driving a 1970 Dodge Challenger from Colorado to California. Along the way he has numerous high-speed run-ins with the law, gets lost in the desert and even meets a naked woman riding a motorcycle. The film is beautiful, as Kowalski's journey is one of highways and back roads, not interstates, and the Challenger is shown racing across sweeping plains, past deep canyons and through expansive stretches of the American West.
