End of the Road
Dir. Aram Avakian. 1970, 110 mins. 35mm. With Stacy Keach, Harris Yulin, Dorothy Tristan, James Earl Jones. Steven Soderbergh revived interest in this counterculture gem, an adaptation of John Barth’s novel about a young English professor with an existential crisis. Filmed on a shoestring budget in Massachusetts, this independent feature was Gordon Willis’s debut.
