Motion Picture Purgatory: FAST COMPANY (1979)

Rick Trembles is back with another exclusive Motion Picture Purgatory review. David Cronenberg may now be one of the country’s most celebrated directors, but much of his past work remains rarely seen by real champions of Canadian film. Of all his work, 1979’s FAST COMPANY may be his most obscure effort, and this time Rick takes a look at the film that takes a break from the diseased horror of his other 1970s and early ’80s work for some surprisingly straight-forward drag racing thrills.
