Fast Company is another one of those 70's exploitation films built around fast cars and hot naked women directed by none other than David Cronenberg. Wait a minute...what the hell? David Cronenberg and drag racing is about as uncommon as Michael Bay and plot. At a young age in his career, but already equipped with the likes of They Came From Within, Rabid, and The Brood under his belt, Cronenberg went a different and presented us with a light-hearted drag racing movie about Lonnie "Lucky Man" Johnson (played well by William Smith), a veteran amongst drag racing and the hero to many fans of this sport. Johnson contends with passing the torch down to a youth on his team (Nicholas Campbell), his estranged girlfriend (the beautiful Claudia Jennings in her last film role before her untimely death), rival Gary 'The Blacksmith' Black (Cedric Smith), and a slimy company man from Fast CO (cult star John Saxon who is the highlight in this film) who wants Johnson finished. The story and direction are above average and really proved that Cronenberg was destined to hit it big, and the actors make the movie fun to watch. The movie even sports a nice couple of titty shots. Really though, it's John Saxon who steals this movie away at times with his a-hole character. This is a completely different and unusual film for Cronenberg, but he made it work and I wound up enjoying it quite a bit. Good stuff.
