Rating:
R
Vanishing Point is a 1971 classic counter-culture drama directed by Richard C. Sarafian. The film follows a washed up ex-policeman, ex-race car driver, and Medal of Honor recipient Kowalski (Barry Newman) who has been reduced to delivering cars across the country. Told through a series of flashbacks, the film begins with Kowlski barreling through a desert landscape toward two bulldozers that have formed a blockade to stop him. Before he reaches the barrier the film freezes, and Kowalski is transported back to a time two days earlier in Denver, Colorado where he assigned a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 Magnum to deliver to San Francisco. To keep awake, Kowalski buys amphetamines from a drug dealer, Jake (Lee Weaver). Kowalski bets Jake that he will arrive in San Francisco by 3 o'clock the next day. As he speeds out of town, Kowalski alerts the attention of two motor cycle cops. While he eludes capture, he sets in motion a cross country police chase. Aided by blind DJ Super Soul (Cleavon Little), Kowalski manages to elude capture until he reaches the vanishing point.moreless
