    cycling movie night.

    i'm making a list to have a cycling movie night (or two). not all fixed. so far i have as candidates...

    american flyers
    quicksilver
    2 secondes (french-canadian film)
    beijing bicycle
    the triplets of belleville
    pee wee's big adventure
    breaking away

    but i'm wondering about more stuff along the lines of lucas brunelle's stuff. what's pedal like? and red light go has mixed reviews on here...but i may go for that one as well.

    on the documentary tip.

    Pure Sweet Hell : a cyclocross vid. I haven't seen it but the trailer looks awesome
    Pro : I thought it was kinda boring
    The Hard Road: OK
    The hippies riding across the country doc with the name I forgot: crappy.
    It's the tour baby: I heard this was funny.

    But you forgot:

    Rad!

    and

    BMX Bandits (featuring a young nicole kidman)

    thanks!

    that all reminds me of a documentary i want to track down--it's called "beasts of burden" and it's about messengers, but beyond that i don't know much.

    i'm gonna go google some more websites with lists...

    oh, yeah, i saw that one on another site. is it good? i mean, to be honest, i'm going to try and gather cycling and non-cycling friends alike, and watch movies that we'll all enjoy and that might even make non-cycling friends want to jump on a bike again.

    gummo will not make people want to get into cycling. they may start eating their meals in the bath, but they prolly won't be compelled to hop on a bike...

    i don't know... those kids are always on bikes. plus, the bmx bike with the front 16" wheel is h-o-t. plus death metal and killing cats? none sweeter.

    Tokyo Godfathers has a character named Gin who is a former keirin racer. Doesnt play a huge part in the movie, but its there.
