Two lane blacktop

directed by monty helman with warren oats as the main character.  basically anything helman’s done is worth a try, and that goes the same for warren oats, but put them together and it’s a sure fire. if you like tom waits, just watch warren oats films and you’ll see where tom picked up the character ideas. if you like vincent gallo films for that matter, just watch helman’s and you’ll see where his inspiration comes from. this is a lesser known film from the era and a gem indeed. i have the dvd and highly recommend it. by dd
