    was watching Apocalypse Now Redux yesterday, can also be considered a road movie, a road trip down the river. Pretty intense movie

    Chasers (1994) - also I would say a road trip movie. I haven't seen it in a long time, so decided to watch it over the weekend. Not the best comedy, but still a pretty fun one with Tom Berenger, Erika Eleniak, Gary Busey, Crispin Clover.

    Two Lane Blacktop
    Vacation (both versions)
    Two for the Road
    Wizard of Oz, I’d argue
    Grapes of Wrath, even

    But not Fury Road.

    The aforementioned WAGES OF FEAR and it's sequel SORCERER are
    favorites. VANISHING POINT and TWO-LANE BLACKTOP are good
    road movies, too. The former is all action, the later is all character.

    Some of the films mentioned merely have a long road scene but that
    doesn't make them road movies. Racing movies are not road movies

    There was a mother-daughter road movie about ten years ago but
    I can't remember the title or the stars. It was a good film.

    My sentiments exactly.

    Edgar G. Ulmer's DETOUR (1945) with Ann Savage.
    Richard Fleischer's THE LAST RUN (1971) with George C. Scott.
    Alan Rudolph's THE LATE SHOW (1974) with Art Carney.
    Michelangelo Antonioni's THE PASSENGER (1975) with Jack Nicholson.

    I meant to say Paul Mazursky's HARRY AND TONTO (1974)
    with Art Carney. Not THE LATE SHOW which is a mystery.

    Until The End of The World.

    Most of it is a road movie, except at the end where everybody winds up in the same place in the outback.
