About the Movie
In Steven Spielberg’s first full-length movie, Duel, a traveling salesman (Dennis Weaver) is harassed by a menacing 40-ton truck on a remote desert highway. Brilliant in its simplicity, the cult favorite takes road rage to a dangerous level as the traveler and the mysterious truck-driver are pitted against one another in a motorized duel to the death. Gripping with psychological tension, this desperate battle for survival is hailed by critics as a film that “belongs on the classics shelf reserved for top suspensers” (Daily Variety).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Steven Spielberg's debut feature is a ripper
Fresh: Simply a rivetingly murderous game of cat and mouse that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Fresh: Spielberg's first film finds the director ruthlessly exploiting a devastatingly simple premise to extraordinary effect.
Spielberg's First and GREATEST Hands down.
Simply put ... One of the greatest films of all time, period.
Signs of a Great Filmmaker
Spielberg was only 24 years-old when he directed "Duel", in 1971! Spielberg directed it as a veteran filmmaker, like Hitchcock would direct it. Spielberg started with a great loud bang!
