07.23.08Alamo Ritz I don't think I loved this as much as some people (especially the I Luv dude who introduced Monte), but I did like it more than The Shooting. I'm not really a car guy per se, but for some reason I like movies that revel in the engine sounds and minutia of automobiles. Maybe because it's totally not my world so it's all the more foreign or maybe more because I just like seeing specialized process and the functions of any subculture and the fact that it's cars doesn't really matter. In any case, this movie really loves cars so I dug that part of it. The awkward characters and plot... eh.

Again, Hellman had a moderate Q&A where he talked about the stars and whatnot. Not many specifics are coming to mind. Glad I saw it to be sure. Very glad I saw it in a theater instead of renting the criterion disc although I may go back at some point just to go through the special features.
