Well, it was a horrendous movie. But the thing was, it was wonderfully horrendous. There are massive amounts of unintentional(?) innuendo and also a lot of hilariously terrible jokes and phrases, but the visuals are incredibly trippy. For example, near the end during the last race, as the camera follows the car along the track, the side wall has an animation of a running zebra that flashes and pops out as if you're wearing 3-D glasses. Then the whole screen turns into a spiral of red and white checks. Another example is at one point there are two people sitting in a room side by side and on the wall behind them is a giant projected image of a koi swimming about. The entire movie is chock full of this kind of weird and inexplicable stuff.There are also only two kinds of editing transitions in this movie: cut, and heads moving across the screen as the scene changes behind them. The latter technique is used incredibly frequently, almost more than cuts.If you have epilepsy or get motion sickness and watch this movie, you are liable to die as a result. This is a movie best enjoyed in a theater with a lot of friends and tons of little kids asking their parents "Daddy, what does that mean?" when Spirtle gives the bad guy the finger as the elevator door closes or when Speed Racer say he isn't "going to put up with this shit any longer". Yeah, I thought this was supposed to be a kids movie too.
but you cannot look me in the eye, and say that you would not want this kind of racing to exist in real life?
