1974, 91 Minutes, Directed by: Peter Weir

Lying in a gently rolling range of hills, the town of Paris has prospered from the hunting and destruction of cars: the road into Paris is a death trap. Into this trap drive George and Arthur Waldo. George is killed; Arthur survives and is pronounced harmless by the mayor. Although unaware, Arthur is a prisoner. He must never leave Paris. But the town that lives by the car shall die by the car, and eventually the hunters become the hunted, in this film directed by Peter Weir (The Truman Show, Dead Poets Society and Witness).

Bizarre black comedy in J.G. Ballard-ish vein about a small Australian town that survives economically by causing traffic accidents and then selling the scrap metal and spare parts.

Weird (no pun intended) early movie by Aussie director Peter Weir who later went on to mainstream Hollywood (and often boring) movies such as The Truman Show, Dead Poet's Society and Witness. Known in the States as Cars That Eat People.
