About this book

In "100 Road Movies", each entry will offer an insightful critique in terms of aesthetics, plot structure and defining formal and thematic features, whilst also considering the title in the wider context and understanding of by what criteria a film may be considered a road movie. Full credits, including year of production, principal cast and technical crew and country of origin will also be included at the foot of each entry. There will be a selection of illustrative stills, approximately twenty-five in total. The scope is broad, a consideration of the elements that gave rise to the road movie sub-genre, how this sub-genre corresponds to other traditional genres (the thriller, the western etc) and how various international countries have adopted the road movie to reflect their cultural, social, political and geographical identities.
