Road Killer

Roadgames (1981) Richard Franklin (Australia)
Stacy Keach puts in an insanely neurotic performance as a truck driver high on his own paranoia in this Duel meets The Hitcher-type movie. Not quite as intense as either, but the dialogue in parts is great. No explanation as to how him and bit-part co-star Jamie Lee Curtis wound up in Australia, but hey, I guess that is not too important. Rural Australia makes middle-America look relatively tame and eerie in its desolation.
