Feel Good Movie of the Year




I just returned from seeing "The Fastest Indian". It's a movie about a New Zealander who in his 60's travels to the the Bonneville Salt Flats during the 1960's and sets a land speed record on a 1920 Indian 45 cubic inch motorcycle. The record still stands to this day. Anthony Hopkins was great as a garage tinkerer whose life long dream was to run his Indian at the salt flats. I won't go into details except to say it was a great period piece and that really captures a unique time in history.

Looks like a winner there Babba-Gi. Trouble is the movie doesn't show up in the Rochester area 'till tomorrow and in a movie house I won't go to. I'll have to wait until it comes to a more respectable movie house.
