Couch Blogging

Since my computer continues to stumble towards death's door, I'm blogging from the couch tonight on Liz's ancient laptop. I'm watching Duel, Steven Spielburg's directoral debut from 1971. I'm only 16 minutes in, and I can already identify some trademark Spielburg moments, and some decent tension, especially considering this was a made-for-TV movie shot with no budget. The premise of road rage is (sadly) less scary - or should I say, more common - today, but it's very well done; too bad more movies today can't be like this.
