Follows Obree's attempt to break the human land-speed record on a machine he built with bits of old rollerblades and saucepans.

Top Critic

A fascinating and quietly revealing portrait of a man who, by his own admission, is unbalanced, obsessional and battles depression, yet still likes nothing more than jumping on his bike and riding it as fast as he can.

A David-Goliath battle that keeps us invested, for all the film's circuitous longueurs and a score that seeks to steer our emotions rather than stir them.

It's an engaging watch, and Street's own camera work provides attractive polish.

Even though Obree does not emerge from this absorbing (if overlong) documentary as someone you would necessarily want as a mate, it is impossible not to root for him.

Unflinching and compelling.
