Did You Know?


Director/Producer Barry Levy decided against using a sleek new sports car, and went with his own classic 1976 BMW 2002, since it gave the lead character, The Driver, a unusual facet. Since The Driver (Barry W. Levy) delivers his brand of justice with a sense of class rather than brute force or speed, it seemed like a stronger choice.

The Driver: As sure as night is night, failing to check his brights isn't his only offense.

Slick and menacing!
11 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a festival in Berkeley, California and it was amazing! It really made me think about how much we take our manners for granted on the road.

Dark, moody, and super cool music from Crystal Method. The editing was very effective and the actor playing the driver had the right mix of evil, good looks, and threat. Does anyone know what kind of car he was driving? It was pretty rad. I would like to see this as full movie.

Great idea to have some bad ass driving around knocking off all the people driving around like butt heads.

Well done.
