A game of cat and mouse between a Semi and a Dart.
"Duel" is an extremely simple plot: Dennis Weaver plays a businessman who, while traveling West on a series of lonely highways, suddenly becomes the target of a truck driver who seeks to punish him for a mistake he had made while driving near the truck.This is one of those films that you have to seriously ask youself "what would I do in this situation?" The thing that made this movie as suspenseful as it was, had to be the year that the film is happening. In the 1970 the word "cell phone" was not used in everyday speech, and no one had them.
This is still one of my favorite Spielberg films yet.
