Default 'Two-Lane Blacktop' - High-Def Digest Review

Daniel has reviewed the Criterion release of 'Two-Lane Blacktop.' More than forty years later, he says the film remains a compelling enigma. This Blu-ray presents the film with very strong video, two audio mixes, and an impressive set of extras. Highly recommended.

Was this a whole new scan for the Blu Ray? Or did the previous Criterion DVD come from the same source? Love this movie but not sure if it's worth the upgrade for such a grainy, low-budget film.

I haven't seen the DVD, so I can't say for sure.

This movie is the epitome of cool. James Taylor becoming a star while the film was being made (Fire and Rain charted during filming), surfer and car junkie Dennis Wilson from the Beach boys, being filmed on route 66, and with the same 55 Chevy used later on American Graffiti. Wow. And the special features are fascinating too. One of my top 5 Criterion buys so far. This will get a lot of replay.
