Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 10/15/1999
"...What the movie has is a feel for the road and out-of-the-way restaurants and gas stations matched by few others..."
Total Film - 07/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "As a study in obsession and emotional dislocation TWO-LANE BLACKTOP is in a class of its own."
New York Times - 12/18/2007
"Mr. Hellman films the flat, empty landscapes with his eyes on the horizon line, as if he were John Ford following a wagon train on its way west."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2008
"Hellman and screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer keep it as stripped down as almost anything in contemporary European art cinema -- it's both abstract and concrete."
