Saw Speed Racer last night and it’s fantastic. The perfect Hollywood movie, and I don’t mean that with any snark or condescension. It had a point of view and resolve that it never sacrificed, it was simultaneously reverent of its source material and not afraid to take chances, and it is the downright prettiest and most thoroughly visually conceived movie I’ve ever seen. The Wachowski’s took everything they learned about film-making in the digital age on the Matrix movies and applied it to something fun and full of love.
Go and see it with love in your heart and you won’t be disappointed.
(P.S.: I have critical thoughts about the movie as well, but they are totally beside the point.)
