Two-lane blacktop appreciation

The Criterion Collection release of the Two-lane blacktop dvd is said to include an ,,appreciation'' by Tom Waits. This 1971 movie was directed by Monte Hellman and tells the story of the wayward Driver and Mechanic (singer/songwriter James Taylor and the Beach Boys' Dennis Wilson) and their souped-up '55 Chevy.

It's not a great movie, or a totally entertaining one, but it's definitely interesting and will strike you if you're in a philosophical (or road-hungry) mood...
