SYNOPSIS: Fast and Furious 1981 style! Harry Hamlin and Joseph Bottoms play two 80's L.A. street racers. These guys are obsessed. They love talking about, working on and driving their cars. In one scene Hamlin even plays a primitive Atari car racing game! Meanwhile Hamlin's girlfriend, Deborah Van Valkenburgh (The Warriors), struggles to make a career in music. Dennis Hopper plays an over-the-hill racer who wants to come back for one more win. He works at the same mechanic shop as Hamlin and Dan Haggerty. Hopper is great as the unshaven, ponytail sporting, crazy eyed old coot. There are lots of practice runs and short races before the big finale. The racing scenes mostly take place at night and almost always on the twisting, turning, deadly hills of L.A.'s famous Mullholland Drive. Not campy or dated at all. This is a serious well made drama with some great driving action.
