Every December 25th a land race is held in New Bonneville California. Only the fastest and most powerful vehicles can handle the grueling conditions. The official race title is, The Bonneville Classic 5000. But the world has come to know it as The Shogun Tango.
Over the span of a year, brothers Christopher Desantis and Greg Desantis made this wicked little sci-fi short called Shogun Tango that is both brilliant and beautiful in its execution. I love the idea behind it, and my immediate reaction to watching it was “Why don’t they make more movies about futuristic races?” Then I remembered how badly Speed Racer tanked, and the mystery was dispelled. But seriously, I’d watch a feature-length version of this.
