Love the Beast

Documentary, Sport 1h 29m 2009

AroView: Eric Bana directs and stars in this passion project tracing his ongoing love affair with his very first car - a Ford GT Falcon Coupe - and his decision to race it in the gruelling Targa Tasmania Rally.

Equally charming and unapologetically indulgent, it is Bana’s easygoing personality that compels, not his ‘examination’ of man’s relationship with machine which is simply too lightweight to resonate. The narrative meanders with a couple of irrelevant detours (a therapy session with celebrity ‘Dr Phil’ McGraw is laughable), however culminates, thrillingly, in a moment of pure cinematic drama.
