Duel ★★★★

Excellent thriller. Felt like a prequel to Jaws. I watched the director’s commentary after the movie about how he shot the movie (in only 12 days!!!), his techniques on the action shots, how he drew out the suspense in the cafe, and a number of other things. Totally fascinating. He just has a really organized and clever mind. There’s nothing dated about this. It’s great. I was genuinely excited. Of course, I gave myself to the movie, but shouldn’t you always?
