Fast Company (1979)

R 08/01/1979 (US) Drama 1h 31m

Strap yourself into a car that flies 240 miles an hour down a quarter mile track.


An early departure from director David Cronenberg's canon of visceral horror, 1979's Fast Company profiles one of his personal passions, racecars, in a gritty melodrama that also features exciting racetrack footage. Veteran toughguy William Smith is top-billed as a champion drag racer who clashes with the unscrupulous oil-company executive (John Saxon) who sponsors his team.
