Movie Recommendation

Just had the good fortune to rent 'The World's Fastest Indian,' a great little Anthony Hopkins movie about New Zealander Burt Munro. Munro was a fanatical worshiper of the 'gods of speed,' and spent his entire life tinkering with his motorcycle to try to make if go faster. Finally, at age 63, he traveled the 8,000 miles to Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats to see how fast he could get it to go.

It's a great movie about following your dreams, no matter what other people tell you. Munro was crazy - at least by most people's standards. But he pursued his dreams until he made them come true.

Back to the top.
