Essentially this oddly engaging -- sometimes just downright odd -- little movie is a feel-good sports movie for the art-house crowd.

"The World's Fastest Indian" is a wonderful true-life story brought to life by an indefatigable Anthony Hopkins.

Seeing the usually elegant Hopkins with unkempt hair and grease under his fingernails is truly a sight to behold.

An eccentric man meets an eccentric dream -- and the result is an oddball delight of a motion picture.

Its lousy title notwithstanding, "'Indian" is a winning character study of a crusty curmudgeon, played to the handlebars by Anthony Hopkins.

The World's Fastest Indian brings a simplified, implausible and often untrue version of a story worth hearing, but I recommend it to anyone who needs proof that people past 60 have dreams, skills and/or sex lives.

Surprisingly, Donaldson makes this movie about a speed demon work by adopting the philosophy of the tortoise, not the hare: Slow and steady wins the race.

The movie really isn't about land-speed records, and it isn't about motorcycles. Instead, it's about a man following his dream and not taking no for an answer.
