TrailersFromHell: ‘Duel’ (1971)
A little TV movie that helped inaugurate “The Seventies Film,” as “existential dread” dripped down from the elites and started being felt by average, unintellectual people. There is no “why” — Something (with a capital “S”) just wants to kill you. (See the director’s next film…)
