Vanishing Point

A vintage road movie that’s considered one of the masterpieces of the genre, Vanishing Point is a symbolically charged work that bridges the gap between Two-Lane Blacktop (1971) and Badlands (1974), two other adored American films of the 70s. Combining the genre’s quest and outlaw tendencies, Sarafian’s film also reaches back to Easy Rider (1969) in the suggestion of spirituality as an antidote to a prejudiced, uptight and hypocritical America.
