Vanishing Point? Vanishing Point!? There's simply no accounting for taste.
Oh Lucky Man was certainly worse, at least in its sarcastic lack of an ending,
but VP had no point, and should have vanished before its flashback beginning.
Of course, even Easy Rider falls down in a similar respect -- If you're going to
rebel against the military-industrial complex (by *speeding*!), your argument
rings hollow if it requires gasoline. Green Peace frequently makes the same
mistake (We don't need your stinking oil, putt-putt-putt).

I'll take Chariots of Fire, Platoon, or even Dune. But then, I like U2 and
can't stand Aerosmith.
