Rent a Classic Car

A mustachioed salesman’s business trip becomes a nightmare when he is tormented by a freight truck which tries to kill him. Duel is a battle of wits set in the dry Western landscape. Steven Spielberg’s directorial debut is 70’s pulp fiction incarnate, but it never fails to pull you in. This is an action thriller which gets your blood pumping despite being fifty years old. There are no outlandish special effects — only well-captured stunt scenes. There is a realness to the acting which wasn’t commonplace in automotive filmmaking back in the day.
