First, yes, the racing scenes are incredible. The shooting, the audio, the cutting, the split-screen, all of the design in this film, in fact, is masterful, pure visual poetry. But everything that isn’t a racing scene is deplorable, soap opera garbage. Awful. So much so that this film as akin to a porno, where you wade through endless scenes of horrid acting and desultory boring plot to the point that you just can’t take it anymore and then, finally, more humping.
I detest this movie, but can not deny that there are 4 breathtaking scenes in here. Watch them and fast-forward through everything else.
