If your cpu is slow, I recommend turning off the HD on the video player :)

Mine was fine - it's powered by human tears.

Thanks for this!!!!!!!!

Lvndr HppE: Hmm. On one hand, its a film starring David Arquette about racing, my least favorite sport. On the other hand, its a Terry Gilliam film. . . . This is a tough one. {thinks some more} Oh, alright. I'll watch it.

That was pretty good. I'm glad they went with funny instead of scary.

Colonel Daughter: "A filmette by Terry Gilliam" XD thank you so much ... Gilliam is my fav. living director right now... especially now that spielberg has lost his touch... :'(

genji: That looks like it might be exciting and funny. Thanks for posting.

Is he a big motor racing fan?

Not sure. Not that I know of. They probably just sought him out and asked him to do it. But I'm starting to get a little theory cooking here... He directed the Arcade Fire webcast (and I know he's a big fan of the band and I think he's got other things on the horizon with them); he's just directed this filmette, backed by huge sponsors... I'm hoping he's making a nice chunk of change on these gigs... maybe he'll finance Quixote himself?? I mean other people do it (Gibson, Cruise, etc), so why not? I have no idea haha... just theorizing ;)
