I was a guest writer on the movie review site of a founder who also shares my deep love for the bafflingly misunderstood Speed Racer (2008). In this essay, I do not rave about Ayn Rand or Objectivism, in fact the word and her name are never mentioned, however, I do touch on a very obvious Objectivist moral that is as clear as the sky is blue. While Objectivism, I believe, is not the focus of this film, I also do not necessarily believe the Wachowski's are Objectivists. Allow me to be very clear: this essay is not a critique on the Objectivist elements in Speed Racer, because I wrote this for a movie review site and wanted to respect and maintain the tone of their domain. I must warn you, there is some cussing and other offensive language, but I reassure you that much of my writing is meant not to be taken quite so seriously, but simultaneously stir up knee-jerk emotions because that's what gets hits and traffic. Sue me. I'm hoping this can inspire a fun conversation here and perhaps invite some people to rewatch and reassess their opinion of the film. So, here it is: http://www.spoilerfr...oure-whats.html
