Movie Info

American independent filmmaker Jesse Moss directs Speedo, a documentary about the life and career of demolition derby driver Ed "Speedo" Jager. The film follows Jager from Riverhead Raceway in New York to the National Demolition Derby Championship in Florida. As a garage mechanic living in Long Island with his wife and kids, Jager starts out as a part-time racer. As he starts to win race after race, he develops an intense love and talent for the sport. Unfortunately, his wife hates racing and the marriage quickly falls apart. Jager puts everything he has into the demolition derbies and eventually falls for a track official, leading him to his goal of competing in a stock car race.

All Critics (3)

the perverse opposite of a film like Spellbound, but it's strangely uplifting nonetheless.
