The clash between American consumer culture and Cuban revolutionary fervor plays out in a fascinating, unpredictable manner in this colorful 2002 feature by David Schendel, about an offbeat collection of Havana painters, auto mechanics, and former racers who are slavishly devoted to their vintage American cars. Schendel introduces his subjects consecutively rather than interweaving them, and his episodic structure results in a fair amount of rambling. But he also uses the voluptuous shape and movement of the cars to create a jagged and mysterious Cuban landscape. In English and subtitled Spanish. 70 min.
