In an attempt to keep The To Watch Pile fresh, I occasionally like to do themes months. Last October I did ‘Nic-toberfest’, a celebration of the fine work of a certain Mr. Nicolas Cage, and in February a few years ago, I did ‘Zombruary’, a bit of a fun February aimed at everything related to zombies.
This year, I’m feeling a little fast, and a bit furious (not really, I’m writing this while I’m on holidays so my furious-ness has abated somewhat) and it’s February, and we love out car movies in Australia, right? I mean, the whole country was built on the back of Mad Max, so what else could I do other than celebrate automobiles in cinema with my very first car-flick celebration, 2 FAST, 2 FEBRUARY.
Over the next 4 weeks, I’ll have a bunch of new reviews (well, 1 previously published on a now defunct website, but re-edited), all featuring films that have a corner stone in car culture in some way. I hope you enjoy.
