The Show-Me State Movies
The Show-Me State is the official nickname of Missouri. There are several stories concerning the origin of the "Show-Me" slogan. The most widely known story gives credit to Missouri's U.S. Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver for coining the phrase in 1899. During a speech in Philadelphia, he said: "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. You have got to show me." The phrase is now used to describe the character of Missourians; not gullible, conservative, and unwilling to believe without adequate evidence (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Missouri became the 24th state of the United States of America in 1821. These movies have a connection with Missouri. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story.

Existential Road Movies
As a poet said: "it's when you have reached the mountain top, that you shall begin to climb."... indeed, the real journey is always within ourselves. And there's an interesting narrative value in the road-movie format when it comes to character studies, especially with existential undertones, as if there was an inevitable parallel between the road taken by the protagonists, of known or uncertain destination, and the path to their own souls' discovery, with as many encounters as revelations of fascinating and contradictory aspects of their personalities. On that level, which of these existential road-movies, ranked by year of release, do you find the most fascinating? Discuss here (The movies have to be set in contemporary times, with a road trip playing a significant part to the plot. Fleeing or evading police or any authoritarian figure shouldn't be the main motive, the road trip is voluntary and freed from any sense of urgency)
