"Duarte and Timothy Corrigan's co-edited volume, The Global Road Movie: Alternative Journeys around the World, effectively captures the best of current road movie scholarship, inviting readers to follow the genre further still. . . . The Global Road Movie, in sum, reaches far and wide to make known a rich diversity of road movies from around the world. In its quest to expand the genre's scholarly canon with more extensive travels, it broadens the horizon--just as any good road movie does."
--David Laderman, Film Quarterly
"In addition to this eclectic focus on Asia, other sections consider the road movies of The Americas, Africa and Europe, issues as wide-ranging as the thawing of US-Cuban relations, the debate about Afropolitanism in representations of Africa and the traces of Romanticism found in the contemporary British road movie. In their introduction, Corrigan and Duarte state that 'there is perhaps no film culture across the globe that has not embraced the road movie'. The diversity of contributors, approaches and films discussed in The Global Road Movie goes some way towards proving this claim."
--John A. Riley "East Asian Journal of Popular Culture "
