Southern American, alcohol, and the goddamn road. Burt Reynolds. Giving your film visual depth. Smokey and the Bandit for Dummies. What we’re dealing with here is a total lack of respect for the law! Bandits. Snowman. Racism in the south. The Prodigy song Their Law uses a quote (not a sample). Pontiac Trans Am. Is this roadsploitation? Whiskey running. Coors being illegal in the 70s. Blocking. Who is David Carradine, really? Thunder and Lightning and Roger Corman. Cheap 70s filmmaking. Christian gator wrestling. 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air hard top (second generation). Rotgut whiskey. What should be icons!
