The Road Movie


Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

This astute broadening of the genre of the road movie geographically and generically is truly essential reading for both students and scholars. In moving away from the strictly American context and conception of the genre, yet without ignoring Hollywood's foundational creation of the genre in the Classical and Modern periods, this volume opens up a new vista on the endless allure of the open road. -- David Desser, University of Illinois
