YOUR FAVOURITE ADVENTURE/TRAVEL MOVIE
In which case, I'm going w/Casablanca. From that map shot in the beginning, to the hassle with their exit papers, to the plane taking off at the end, any traveller can relate. Instilled a longing for Morocco in me as well. CLASSIC.
I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.

If you get the Criterion DVD of Richard Linklater's SLACKER it includes his first feature shot on Super 8mm a few years earlier. Titled IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO LEARN TO PLOW BY READING the film follows Linklater as he randomly travels from Austin to the Northwest and then back. The film has very little dialogue. It's a lot of Linklater travelling by train. He doesn't get into adventures along the way. He stares out the window a lot. It shows a side of travel rarely, if ever, shown on film: the mundane. I don't know what it is about the film that inspires me. I guess it's the idea of just kind of going, having no plan, no responsibilites. It's not for everyone but worth giving a try if you can stomach a minimalist film.
