Dule Is Directed By Steven Spielberg, Starring

Dennis Weaver and came out in 1971. This movie was the movie of the week on television. It was a made-for-TV movie, but it was so successful that it was actually shown in some theaters and it helped launch the career of one of the best-known filmmakers of our time Welcome to my Steven Spielberg series I’m going to be covering a select few of his films leading up to bridge of spies next month and unlike the past few classic movie reviews. I’ve been doing this is not going to contain spoilers because I feel that not enough people have actually seen this movie so this is going to be a spoiler free review. This one has a very simple story.

A Man Is Driving To A Business Meeting

he’s in a very deserted area. There’s not a lot of cars there’s. of population he passes an old run-down truck and doesn’t think anymore of it until he starts to notice. This truck is getting closer and closer in his rearview mirror and that sets off ninety minutes of one of the most intense and well-made chase films in history. When you consider those circumstances that Spielberg was given to make this film.

I Believe It Was From Uk In Such

a small timeframe in such a tight budget what he was able to accomplish is mind-blowing. This movie still to this day holds up as an extremely well–made chase film because the entire thing is done in camera and a great performance by Dennis Weaver, who is a very underrated actor and in this film he brilliantly captures the horror of being terrorized on the road because if you’ve ever driven somewhere perhaps late at night or in a very deserted. Being followed there’s automatically a paranoia that develops in you or at least it does me where I look in the rearview mirror and I’m like like I’ve been following me for a while also worth noting as Spielberg’s incredible use of the truck as an antagonist. When you look at this thing, you see a monster it almost looks like it has a face. In fact, Spielberg actually has said that he chose that truck because he thought its grille resembled a face.

You Actually Feel Like That Thing

as a character and his wise choice to not reveal the face of the truck driver heightened the tension even more because he feels like this faceless all powerful thing that can accomplish anything and you buy into it. The first time I saw this film I was very young. I was maybe like 11 or 12 years old and. I rented it from a local library. It was on UK tape of course and I remember watching and thinking okay this could be cool.

I Dont Remember If I Actually Knew It

was Spielberg at the time. I think I had an idea that it was but I was like that’s the guy who does Jaws and Indiana Jones right okay cool let’s watch this and it blew me away as a little boy like I was like wow that is really cool and I made the ultimate mistake of showing it to my dad, who worked in the transportation business at the time it actually still does Cuz my dad took a lot of long drives in a truck and I was like my dad like this it’ll be fun. Cuz he’s a truck driver yeah and then afterwards he was so nerve-racked and so tense I felt. And he’s never forgiven me for that experience because this movie actually affected him that deeply because it was like his line of work a truck driver at the time and watching this guy go through This incredibly intense situation with like every bit of fear and every possible road rage scenario being played out and it was handled so well and so efficiently too that’s what’s so great about this movie because when you watch it now it really doesn’t feel like a UK movie it feels as if Spielberg was directing for the big screen at the time, there are no obvious fade-outs for commercial breaks. There are no obvious cuts like that this feels 100% like a movie you’d see in theaters and for a film that came out in 1971 it still holds up marvelously.

Its A Suspense-Filled Film That Never

lets up truly especially the fantastic cafe sequence. It’s sort of like the centerpiece of the second act. Dennis Weaver thinks that just for a second he escapes this guy and he goes to this cafe. It’s like the only place around that he can find, and he suddenly begins to realize that the truck driver just might be inside the cafe, and he starts to look around at all the different people and he begins to suspect that one of them is the driver and the psychological battle that’s going on in his mind. Throughout this sequence is so compelling his eyes are peering back and forth of these people to try to decipher, which one is the truck driver and it’s one of the best scenes in the film.

In Fact It Feels Like Its

own little short movie like all great Spielberg films. film builds and builds and builds. It’s a film that immediately invests you almost instantaneously. You care about this character. The way Spielberg directs action having our character in the screen while other things are happening around him not even noticing that really long takes our recurring because of the way he situates the camera, allowing things to move in and out of the frame, more suspense and more tension just keeps piling and piling to an incredible finale, which as I said I won’t spoil where you just feel this adrenaline of the moment you can truly feel it through the film and that is just it’s so remarkable for the limitations he had on him.

The Amount Of Time The Network

gave him to film this movie and for the fact that it’s a television movie from 1971. I mean even today in 2015 UK movies do not. get respect at all because the large majority of them really do Suck and it’s just like an excuse for networks to find more advertisements to pile on in various commercials. Spielberg took what UK may have been planning and turned it into one of the best chase films ever made and it still holds up today guys if you’ve never seen dual.

I Strongly Suggest It I Didnt

want to get into spoilers because I know a lot of people actually have not seen this film and so I wanted to make sure you guys got a chance to see the movie without really knowing much about it. I highly recommend it and I’m going to give dual and a guys thank you so much as always for watching I’m going to be returning very soon with another review for a Spielberg movie and it’s for a movie I’ve. wanted to talk about for a long time Hook can’t wait to give you my opinion on that movie guys that’s going to be very soon thank you so much as always once again and if you like this, you can click right here and get stuck mine eyes Oh.
