Just when you think that you have seen the most magnificently, beautifully awful films that the world can produce, you find a new one: Driven. This remarkable film was penned by and starred in by... [drumroll please] Slyvester Stallone. He plays an old race car driver called up to the front once more so he can be the gnarled and wise presence and also probably win the cup or something because, after all, he wrote it. I would tell you about its great moments of WTF genius but I don't know where to start. For once, a film has managed to silence me. I have no words. No words at all. Language has not yet been created to capture the horrors of this film.

I have seen pretentious people say this about things of major cultural significance, so I shall imitate them: Go. Watch. Your life will never be the same again.

ETA: I do not know the world of motor racing, but I think that if in your first year out you were coming second in the championship, your team would not fire you even if you started making errors. Especially if you were at all photogenic.

ETA 2: I should mention one WTF moment: the one where the main girl does a synchronized swimming routine. For no apparent reason. Just because there's a pool and such.
