Bob Gale: When Bob Zemekis and I first wrote "Back to the Future", the time machine was a refrigerator, and Bob Zemekis, the director, said, "Wouldn't it be simpler if Doc actually built the time machine into a car?" And then he says, "And what if he car was a DeLorean?" It wasn't my idea but I know a damn good idea when I hear one. This was a damn good idea. So I said, yeah that's great.

Solid doc on a very strange story
12 October 2020 | by bastosSee all my reviews

I watched this after watching Driven, the movie that eventually was made about this story, and I'm glad I did it to see what really happened. I liked the way this movie was made, using interviews with some of the participants and reenactments for some of the scenes, and it even goes a step further with a sort of making of of said reenactments. A strange structure that worked for me. That being said this movie also has some of the sins that plagued the movie, which is stranger in a doc, as it over glorifies some of the merits of DeLorean (the invention of the GTO, for example) and never tries to dig further than the official trials to unravel the real truth (his involvement with drugs is very sketchy to say the least). Still a solid doc on a very good real life story.
