Product Description

Winner of audience and jury awards at film festivals across the country SPEEDO is an original American love story set amidst the dangerous bare-knuckled world of demolition derby. Hailed as "highly enjoyable" (Variety) and "an instant cult classic" (Film Threat) SPEEDO kicks up the dirt surrounding Ed "Speedo" Jager one of the nation's top "demo" daredevils. A Long Island garage mechanic by day the lanky-haired Speedo spends his free time at work compulsively rebuilding his pieced-together wrecks before each competition: "It's an addiction" he says "like nitro-methane through your veins." But as a hobby turns into an obsession Speedo's marriage of twenty years begins to deteriorate like a junkyard Cadillac which only fuels his raceway rages. Will a developing crush with a female track official finally bring peace to this hell on wheels? With a riveting v+ªrit+ª style director Jesse Moss compassionately captures Speedo's collisions and confrontations on and off the track during one tumultuous year. From the fiery thrills of the metal monsters in action to the intimate dramas between a dysfunctional family and a budding romance SPEEDO is what you'd call a high-octane crowd-pleaser! DVD Features: Audio Commentary with filmmaker Jesse Moss and Ed "Speedo" Jager; Deleted Scenes and Updates; Speedo Photo Gallery; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

Like any good documentary, Speedo finds layers of meaning beneath its simple, entertaining story. With genuine affection for his subject, filmmaker Jesse Moss aims his camera at the wild and wacky blue-collar life of Ed "Speedo" Jager, a gas-station mechanic from Long Island, New York, who's determined to become the demolition derby champion of America. As he bolts together his latest wreck for demo-track competition, Speedo's raw language and homespun wisdom reveal a man who's uneducated but sharply in tune with his goals, desires, and responsibilities as a father. Moss's camera captures it all, from the volatile aggression of pit-lane competitors to the disapproving wrath of Ed's soon-to-be-ex-wife and punk-rock aspirations of his teenage son, who yearns for a wreck-worthy car of his own. By the time Ed finds a supportive new girlfriend, Speedo reveals a perfect match of family man, good-hearted woman, and the pursuit of happiness on the demo-derby circuit. Without a hint of condescension toward his working-class hero, Moss has crafted a memorable portrait that's purely American and yet universally appealing to optimists of any class. --Jeff Shannon
