In a desperate attempt to save the girl, the legendary actor, Humphrey Bogart, rides a proud wild mustang, as the Austrian filmmaker Virgil Widrich's rapid-fire montage seamlessly incorporates 65,000 print-outs of iconic film frames into one long and frenzied chase sequence. A multitude of adversaries--including the emblematic monster from Frankenstein (1931)--want to thwart the ambitious plans of the dauntless man of action, Sean Connery, and his intrepid companion, Harrison Ford, who are pitching in to help; however, not if the elegant, Audrey Hepburn, and the beautiful, Eva Marie Saint, can help it. Who knew one could cram so many classic cinema mega-stars in less than thirteen minutes?Written by
Several years ago, a short film won an Oscar and it consisted of tons of clips from classic Hollywood films. At the time, I thought the film didn't really deserve the award, as there was no original content--just a nice collection of clips from old films. However with FAST FILM, someone got the idea of using classic clips in a whole new and exciting way. Using modern computers, the film makers were able to use film clips in a peculiar way--a way that is frankly too tough to explain! You just have to see it for yourself, but this is NOT just a cheap assemblage of clips. Instead, the clips move and tell a fast-paced story that is just beyond words! Now as for the story, it's not all that important. Instead, FAST FILM is more like an art film--like something you'd see in a modern art gallery. Captivating and strange--it's well worth a look.
