ROCKET
LACar film review

FILM REVIEW—ROCKET is the winner of a 2017 Student Academy Award along with multiple other awards at a number of film festivals across the county. It’s the story of 1950′s dirt track racing … and a young girl’s legacy passed down from father to daughter. Filmed on location at a ranch in Lompoc, California and featuring driving by the likes of racing legend Wally Pankratz and his daughter, TQ champ Randi; “ROCKET” is a study in relationships and racing to life and portrays the subject in a cinematic style reminiscent of Bruce Kessler and John Frankenheimer. Review by Dave Wolin.

REVIEW—I had the privilege of being invited to the screening of the new car culture movie, LOWRIDERS, directed by Ricardo de Montreuil. I might be a little biased on this movie because I spent many years as a contributing editor and photographer for LOWRIDER MAGAZINE, and was involved in covering Lowrider shows all across the country. I saw a lot of real life events that are replicated in this movie. Tom Gomez reviews the movie.
