When Oscar-nominated director Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas) was invited to film the Gumball Rally, the famous high speed race in Istanbul, he decided instead to craft a raw and intimate film that exposes the effects of an unexpected sexual encounter and the high stakes of the race on two strangers. For seven days Figgis shot in his signature run-and-gun style, the result is a courageous new work that blurs fact and fiction and probes the unsettling consequences of infidelity, loneliness and life in the fast lane.
Occasionally interesting but for the most part just plain boring, this is an investigation of a depressed, reckless woman intent on self-harm and the consequences of a one night stand for a hooray-Henry who picks her up and treats her as an object.
Is it a documentary, a drama, a psychological thriller? No idea, and I suspect neither does the director.
I recommend it be watched by depressed, reckless women for fashion tips and hooray Henrys for travel tips. Everyone else avoid.
