REVIEW: In all fairness I'm not a
street racing fan but I do understand the draw
to it. I spent many moons in California.
I understand the "bad boy" image of
the sport and yes things like that can draw in
even the best of us. I asked a
professional racer to sit and view this film
Our third victim was a 19 year old car fan
"Nicole". Because her father is an avid
car collector she respects and loves the cars.
The fact she's driven some of the most
beautiful cars in the world -- she's not only
the "demographic" for the film but a true car
fan. ( If anyone even thinks of e-mailing me
for her info to meet her - DON'T - I know her
father! - this is a stricter warning than the
Okay - so the film:
Winner of Best Cinematography at the
Sundance Film Festival I was excited to press
the play button. Thinking this
movie is about racing - I said bring it on.
First impression: Vulgar. But
sometimes reality is that harsh.
While I hope SO-Cal street racers aren't as
stupid as they seem in the movie - we all the
mistakes of youth. Am I getting old?
Nicole is finding it hard to find out when
the actual storyline starts. Mr. Racer is
wishing for ore car scenes.
What the film lacks in acting ability and
storyline it does make up with incredible
camera work. Kudos to a director
that can work with these negatives but still
allow for the right emotions of the viewer to
come out fro just the angle of the camera.
Lighting master work- shots that were
beyond creative. For that alone, I found
creative. When the story was unfolding
it was harsh. "Trying too hard" Nicole
said - in meaning to appeal to her
Mr. Racer was expecting some more car
scenes with some good stunts.
That's what you get growing up with "Gone in
60 seconds" and "LeMans" [movie]
Art is in the eye of the beholder.
The best part of being human is being unique -
like our opinions. The movie is high on
offensive, low on racing.........sorry. Camera
work is extremely beautiful and does take the
pain away. But don't take my word for it
.......take it for a test drive on your
