Fast Company is a must-see for fans of director David Cronenberg and automotive gearheads alike. While Cronenberg took a break from the horror genre, he feels just as at home in the seat of a dragster. It's all gears and fast cars and beautiful women. The great John Saxon plays our villain who wants his cars to lose while the money keeps pouring in from oil company sponsor Fast Company (FastCo). Lead racers played by William Smith and Nicholas Campbell eventually catch on and fight back to an explosive ending. It drags a little in the middle as the racing takes a back seat to the romance, but Cronenberg's obsession with the machinery of cars carries the movie. This was the final film of Claudia Jennings, who died in car crash several months after the film's release.
