Two-Lane Blacktop ★★★★★

When people wonder what naturalism in cinema might look like, take a look at this movie. It doesn't call attention to itself. It allows it characters space to roam. It allows the landscape to linger. Things happen and don't happen and yet its always not quite what you expected it to be.

Watching it this time the burning celluloid seems the only way to keep this thing from lasting a literal lifetime because it really could go on forever.
