Move Review: Dust To Glory

Sunday, February 12, 2006
This weekend I rented and watched the documentary Dust to Glory. Written and directed by Dana Brown (son of Bruce Brown, the man who brought us The Endless Summer) Dust to Glory is about the Baja 1000.

To say the movie is "about the Baja 1000", though, is to deny the brilliance of the filmmaking, the beauty of the camerawork, and the depth of the story. The Baja 1000 is a mostly unregulated race over a thousand miles of mostly off-road Baja California. As the documentary unfolds, we watch the police stop racers. We watch as the the racers pass normal road traffic, leaping through the air over the bumps. We watch one man race the entire thing alone on his motorcycle. Surrounded by professionally backed teams (and mom-and pop teams running in the VW Bug class), one racer takes his motorcycle through the desert in 18 hours... alone. It's DARK there in the middle of nowhere.

This documentary is a must-see for anyone interested in racing, motorcycling, or just a great film. I wanted to see it since I saw the preview over on Apple Trailers.

The bottom line: you should see it, too.
