As a kid, this movie title always scared me for unknown reasons (I mean, apart from the fact that cars could not really eat, could they? and if they did, how on Earth would they swallow an entire city?)... So this Peter Weir movie's always eluded me until recently when a friend lent me her DVD. I can safely say the movie is not that good - it's not very well-written and doesn't make much sense, even in an oblique, allegorical way. On the other hand, I fell in love with the great soundtrack by Bruce Smeaton, which was screaming "sample me! sample me!" all along, especially with the two great opening numbers. Discogs tell me there's only a 7'' EP single available, which is a shame, really (for a whopping €100 apiece!) as the opening tune is not to be found anywhere... anyway, here's the main theme which has a nice groove to it - and the coolest ever design for a car!
