Incredible
29 January 2013 | by (Speedway, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie with a friend about 30 years ago as a teenager, and it has stuck with me all my life. It's probably responsible for much of my wanderlust and sense of adventure.

The film is compelling mostly because of the chutzpah of the filmmaker, and the utterly unplanned, continent-spanning trek around the globe. Mangels, the filmmaker, seems to live a charmed life. Despite the danger all around him, nothing touches him.

The only other filmmaker I can think of that comes close to matching the sheer balls of Magels is H.B. Halicki who directed the original (1974) version of Gone in 60 Seconds.

Every kid should see a film like this.
