Made six years before I entered this world, Vanishing Point is an achievement in cinematic anti-establishment greatness. It's loosely based on a true story and a testament to living on the fringe of Orwellian society.
Set against the badlands of Western America this is "the maximum trip at maximum speed." Barry Newman plays Kowalski, a former cop and vet, who is Polish and therefore bad ass. A pilled up Viking chalk full of integrity and navigating a 1970 Dodge Challenger from Denver to the City by the Bay.
Having to pull this journey off in under fifteen hours can only mean super charged mayhem lies ahead. One adrenaline spiked car chase after another with epic desert landscapes and counterculture heroics. A movie that defines tune in and drop out.
Destruction is the only road you're headed for.
