David Mann is trying to drive his car across California. When he tries to pass a gas tanker, the driver somehow takes offense. At first the unseen driver just annoys David by continually passing him and slowing down. Then he starts playing mind games with David, tempting him to pass the tanker, only to prevent him when he tries. The story is seen from David’s point of view, with commentary as he thinks to himself.

I love Spielberg and Tarantino so decided to make ‘Duel’ into a short grindhouse style film based on ‘Death Proof’.
