CGiii Comment

Full of supposed existential qualities and regarded, by many, as a minimalist masterpiece which means little dialogue and a bit artsy-fartsy.

Harry Dean Stanton plays a creepy homo cowboy - because, in the 70s, all homos were creepy.

To appreciate this, you have to really like road movies and racing (and a moaning girl) otherwise, it's a poorly lit boys-and-their-toys dirge to masculinity.
