Breakdown (1997)

breakdownBy Scott Goldfine

What would you do if your spouse suddenly disappeared while you were traveling across the country? That’s the premise of this taut thriller set in Arizona about a man (Kurt Russell) whose wife (Kathleen Quinlan) vanishes after taking a ride from a trucker (J.T. Walshto get help then their car breaks down.

There’s nothing especially new here, but Russell is excellent in a film that echoes of Hitchcock. Rated R.
