Lead foot. Rough ride.
13 May 2013 | by (L.A.) – See all my reviews

Hollywood really has it in for auto racers. Whenever they're portrayed on screen - by Kirk Douglas, Clark Gable, Jeff Bridges, anyone - they are God's own SOBs, selfish, brusque, users. 'Corky' takes the cake. The makers of this movie evidently don't know the difference between 'anti-hero' and 'bust-out a**hole'. 'Corky' is one piece of work.

But it's worth a gander for seeing Charlotte Rampling - a real favorite of mine - pushing a baby carriage around a low-rent Southwestern carnival. It's THE milieu that's dead last in any list of places Rampling would be least likely to show up. ...Something of a mind-bender, that scene.
