Race footage backed by music of Pink Floyd, interesting for die hard fans only
19 October 2000 | by dcarlson3See all my reviews

This 65-minute documentary about a cross-country race does little but show off some nice cars, two of them coincidentally driven by Pink Floyd's Nick Mason and David Gilmour. Apparently this was reason enough to fill up the soundtrack with Pink Floyd tunes (as if a reason is needed for that), and the flick does boast the Floyd's return after a long absence. Several new, never-before-available instrumentals crop up here, including "Pan Am Shuffle" and "Carrera Slow Blues". Unfortunately, the versions contained herein are cluttered with dialogue and interviews. Still, Mason and Gilmour seem to be having fun, and if you're a die hard Floyd fan, you may get a mild kick out of it. The music doesn't seem to be up to the caliber it was when Roger Waters was in the band, but it is still light-years better than most FM rock.
