RE "Blacktop": It looks amazing, and it plays like it was made yesterday. It was very clever of Hellman to cast three low-key, taciturn non-actors against Oates' manic, bullshitting GTO. Too bad Dennis Wilson never made another film. A great, lean script, too. It take a minute to get involved in its rhythm/non-rhythm, but it pays off. And I have to agree with Richard Linklater's notes: Cars never sounded this good in movies, before or since. It's like you're living inside an engine.
