Framing John Delorean: Money, power, politics, drugs, scandal, and fast cars. Discover the untold story of the controversial automaker’s meteoric rise and shocking fall.
As I was writing the preceding post about the other John DeLorean movie, Driven, I stumbled across this second film. Personally, I think Lee Pace was a better choice for the lead than Baldwin since both DeLorean and Pace were/are tall and slim, 6’4″ and 6’5″ respectively, whereas Baldwin is too short and heavyset for the role.
Looking forward to watching this tonight.
Even if you don’t know who John DeLorean was, you probably know his famous car used for time travel in the Back to the Future movies. After leaving GM where he had been a senior officer, he started his own company, DeLorean Motors, to build and sell the DeLorean sports car. The company quickly found itself in a cash flow crunch, and as legend has it, John attempted to raise $30 million by doing a coke deal. The big question is did he come up with the idea or was he the victim of an FBI sting operation? The jury found him not guilty.
There’s a recent film about DeLorean where Lee Pace, who bears an uncanny resemblance, plays him. This movie can be categorized as light comedy.
Here’s the trailer for Driven. I rate it a solid 6.5/10.

If you are one of those people who passively watch your life go by without taking any action, this is a must watch. Each decade goes by quicker than the preceding ones.
