I'm looking for films that have car scenes with moving background. Please, let me know if you remember some films where background and lighting is working well. Both, daylight and night scenes, will do. More dialogue, the better. (I'll use two actors on frontseats). I only remembered 12 monkeys. Thanks.

Pop in any film with a car, and chances are good that you'll find what you're looking for.

Pulp Fiction
Royale w/ Cheese
Cab ride after Butch's fight
"Oh man, I just shot Marvin in the face"

Minority Report
After Anderton kidnaps the Precog

Collateral
The whole movie, basically

Se7en
John Doe is in their custody

Fight Club
Tyler lets go of the wheel

The Right Stuff
Gordo Cooper drives to and from Edwards Air Force Base

The Dark Knight
Gordon protects Reese from an angry mob
Two Face confronts a mob lord

Blood Simple
The opening scene

No Country For Old Men
Lewellyn hitchhikes

The Hitcher
The opening scene
Most of the rest of the movie

Death Proof
Opening scene
Mike demonstrates his death-proof car
The build up to the "Hold Tight" crash sequence

Snickers TV spots
The ones with the Viking and Henry VIII on a road trip


Anyway, those should probably be a good start.

Are you looking for situations using rear projection and poor man's process or "live" backgrounds, for lack of a better term?

Spun, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, Natural Born Killers and Night On Earth feature extensive driving scenes.

There are so many of them . . .

For the most part you can pick any movies off of your shelves and there's probably a little bit, at least. O'Brother Where Art Though has a few as does Road to Perdition. Pulp Fiction is kind of famous for the really stylized one after Butch's fight. The scene is color but the rear projection is B&W.

"Sugarland Express" has huge number of dialogue car scenes - an overlooked Spielberg film. Most of the film is a car journey, with the hi jacked police car being followed by countless police cars down in Texas. One of the first Panaflex features.
