Top 25 Road Films
At one point along the way I asked him what his favorite "journey" movies were. We quickly realized that we were naming a lot of movies, which meant that some part of our criteria for what constitutes a journey movie remained unclear. The problem was that all movies could be classified in terms of journey. It's a vague and ambiguous terms without clear guidelines for what you're after.
You can expect, then, how delighted I was to hear about IMAGE's declaration of the Top 25 Road Films. "Road" is their guideline. Some of these I have heard of, but many are new. In any case, I'm excited to start watching these. You can take a look at the list here, but be sure and read Darren Hughes intro post here. I really need give The Moviegoer another shot. I think Walker Percy and I would be friends.
Which ones on the list have you seen? What did you think about them? Which movies would you add to the list? For me, Little Miss Sunshine.
