Endless highways, the search for freedom, meeting new challenges and (re-)discovering your identity: The lure of road movies has not diminished since it burst onto the screen in the late sixties. Every new generation of filmgoers has found something within a road movie that appealed to them.
What makes a great film? Many people would say that it is the quality of the direction that makes a film stand-out from the crowd. Hence the enduring success of the films of Orson Welles, for example. Add a strong story, first-class acting and brilliant cinematography, and a film will likely be on many people’s list of contenders for the best films ever made.
