Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Out there on MOGUL Communications VHS is this road movie that used to play at drive-ins in the seventies. It has a few car chases that are filmed and edited in the typical cheap way. You know, speeding up the film as it looks that they are driving like mad people but there are a few shots inserted that has split screens and that surprised me which means that the director, Robert W. Stringer, knew his stuff and let this be his one and only flick he directed, he was more involved in soundtracks.
Also clearly to see that it was a low budget flick. There's one shot towards the end were blood is involved and it just looked like syrup and the edited the way he died so they didn't need any effects. There's also use of a lot of stock-car racing footage and it does work.
The acting for such kinds of flicks was rather good. I won't go into any names because for me no-one jumped out of it by acting.
Surprisingly good drive-in flick with a lot of editing effects (flash back in the car in the last reel), won't compare it to Drive (2011) but if that's your kind of flick and you can dig low budget then it's worth watching.
