Fast Company
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - David Cronenberg


Though known for his thinking-person's horror flicks, director David Cronenberg provides a realistic, compelling portrait of the race car circuit in FAST COMPANY. Lonnie "Lucky Man" Johnson (William Smith) knows that his sponsor, Fast Company Motor Oil, wants to let him go in favor of a younger, edgier image and spokesperson. As Johnson, the company representative (John Saxon), and Johnson's girlfriend Sammy (Claudia Jennings, in her last role before her untimely death), navigate through a web of competition, greed, and octane, Cronenberg presents an astonishingly detailed drama that gets to the heart of fame and the American dream.
