Vanishing Point

This film entirely informed my taste in cars. I love big square noisy cars. Why would you even want to buy a car which was small and economical, let alone electric, dont the people who make electric cars realise that electric motors make no noise! This film for me is as much about how it looks than anything else, that huge American landscape is a character. To be honest not a great deal happens in Vanishing Point, and I cannot pin down exactly what it is trying to say. I think its something about being free, following your heart and living whilst you are still alive, but it might be deeper than that, it could also be about the kindness of strangers in the face of adversity or escape from repressive society. What ever it is about its a good (if slightly plot anemic) story which will take you on a journey with it, and not since have I seen a car on screen that has looked or sounded quite so good.
