Jeff Bridges feels the need for speed in this engaging tale of a moonshiner swapping boot-legging for NASCAR.
Working from pieces Tom Wolfe wrote about driver Junior Johnson, director Lamont Johnson (no relation) makes Bridges the archetypal ’70s hero: a rule-breaking rebel with a chip on both shoulders and a soft side that makes him easy prey for Valerie Perrine’s pit-lane floozy.
Top Gear fans will relish the old-school racing, but Bridges’ laconic charisma carries it over the finish line on its own.
