i love JT, but this movie sucks, Jan. 5 2004
James Taylor is my favorite artist of all time. I have all his albums and love every song on every one. But, there is a reason he is not a successful actor. The evidence: Two-Lane Blacktop. This is probably the worst movie I have ever seen, and I have seen some bad movies (e.g.--Bubble Boy). I bought this DVD because JT was in it, thinking it couldn't be too bad. I have never watched it all the way through. I can't. Can't stomach it. There is virtually no dialogue, and I have absolutely no idea what the movie is about. This could have been called "Chronicles of the Mute Drifters". Now, I have this movie in my DVD collection and people ask me, "What is that?" And, I say, "Oh, That's a movie James Taylor was in back in the day." And, then they say, "Oh . . . Well, Should we . . ." And, I say, "No. NO! Don't ever watch this movie. Ever. You would be better served picking lint out of your bellybutton or watching paint dry, because this movie is like that, with worse dialogue and less vivid color." But, that is probably the same reaction JT has now, when some random fan mentions this movie and he cringes, before putting his head in his hands, and saying "What was I thinking . . ."
