"In a time when vacant retreads such as THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS are the problem, VANISHING POINT is the answer."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Thrills, spills...and a handful of pills. It all adds up to one of the most spectacular car chases in motion picture history! Barry Newman stars as Kowalski, the last American hero, who sets out to prove that he can drive from Denver to San Francisco in just fifteen hours. Along the way, he meets an old prospector (Dean Jagger), a snake worshipper, a nude woman on a motorcycle, and a blind D.J. (Cleavon Little) who "sees" danger ahead in this super-charged, action-packed adventure!
An ex-racecar driver gets high on Benzedrine and leads the police on a hectic chase.
