Lost Cinema: Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry (1974)

While Peter Fonda's Easy Rider is the essential counter-culture outlaw classic from 1969 this rumbling road movie from '74 is wicked fun with great photography of seventies California and frantic car chases that have aged well. In the vein of other subversive flicks like Vanishing Point and Two Lane Blacktop, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry is a moody time capsule of a bygone era.
