I’m delighted to announce that The Overview, our series of alternative commentaries to your favorite movies, is returning on a high note! Or rather, is returning with the sound of highly-tuned souped-up engines revving and raring to go!
The film we watch and discuss real-time is the now-classic 2001 franchise-starter, The Fast and The Furious, starring Paul Walker as a cop trying to make good, and Vin Diesel as the surrogate father to a group of misfit gear-heads. Pete Fenzel and Matthew Wrather delve deep into issues of genre, storytelling, character building, identity, morality, and pre-9/11 ideas of empire, “globalization,” and utopian cultural harmony. That’s a lot for a movie that gets called just about cars.
You’ll need your own copy of The Fast and The Furious in any format, and you’ll need to buy and download the file for just $1.99.
