Life in the fast lane. (minor spoilers)
4 January 2005 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

'Fast Talking' is a pretty good Aussie drama, despite a somewhat crappy, or at least unresolved ending (for me, anyway). Similar, I suppose to the 1979 American teen outlaw drama, 'Over the Edge,' 'Fast Talking' is about an elusive fifteen-year old trouble maker named Steve Carson (you probably remember actor Rod Zuanic best as Scrooloose in the third Mad Max movie). Already a pro dope dealer from a broken down family. His mom left with a cake shop owner, his dad's an unemployed stumbling drunk who tries to get rich fast by training greyhounds, and his brother uses him to push drugs at the school. Although, Steve befriends the owner of a motorcycle graveyard and one teacher who is sure to get fired for helping him out, there seems to be few meaningful options for the kid. The movie is basically all about one spot of trouble after another that Steve gets himself into, and tries to fast talk his way out of. With an outlaw, you should always expect a dramatic exit.

Its a decent drama with Zuniac doing a fantastic job as Steve. Teenagers, at least, are probably sure to enjoy it if, of course, you don't mind obscure 80s Aussie dramas (it's not a tearjerker or anything like that). It is definitely worth a go, if you can find it.
