Speedo
(DVD)


Exposing all the thrills and spills of the demolition derby, this highly personal documentary from director Jesse Moss focuses on the life of driver Ed "Speedo" Jager. Life as a top derby racer takes its toll on Jager's private life, with every professional peak being levelled out by a very personal trough. Totally addicted to the rush of the track, the latest in a long line of tragedies to befall the superstar is the break-up of his marriage. Moss captures all the gruesome details on camera, as well as Jager's pursuit of a track official who catches his eye. The film is shot over a year in the life of the driver, and captures all the highs and lows he encounters.
