LOST HIGHWAYS: Illustrated History of 'Road Movies'

LOST HIGHWAYS: An Illustrated History of Road Movies

Edited by Jack Sargeant and Stephanie Watson

The Road Movie: a complex cinematic journey that incorporates mythic themes of questing, searching, adventure, being, love, a home and the promise of a better future - and also serves as a map of current cultural trends.

This book explores the history of the road movie through a series of detailed essays on key films in the genre - and through these studies a clear vision of the road movie appears.
