Paul and Erin review two films about driving long distances, but at very different speeds. First: THE STRAIGHT STORY, David Lynch's change-of-pace 1999 drama starring Richard Farnsworth as an elderly man who embarks on a six-week road trip via riding lawnmower to visit his estranged brother; then, DEATH RACE 2000, Paul Bartel's 1975 dystopian cult satire set in a future version of the United States where the most popular sporting event is a transcontinental auto race in which the competitors score points by killing pedestrians. John Deere or Don Steele: which will prevail?
Plus: quick takes on MUD, MAN OF STEEL, and THE ANGEL'S SHARE.
