TLDR

Reminder to check in with the people that supported you. And maybe do your laundry if you haven’t yet.

What it's about

After being dumped by his girlfriend, sport stacking world champion Kao must do all he can to win her back, while keeping his title from other competitors.

The take

After the devastating Happy Old Year, we were excited to see the next of what Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit has to offer. Fast & Feel Love is a surprising one, purely because of how silly and unserious the entire film is. The satirical film follows a sport stacker whose passion to be the fastest blinds him to all the day-to-day tasks and life goals that have been pushed towards his girlfriend, and the film plays this basic conflict as dramatically as other action films would, with dynamic cinematography, an over-the-top soundtrack, and dramatic voice overs. The joke does get stretched a tad too long, but it humorously pokes fun at the infantile ways men in action films act, while still recognizing how this mindset is the way we cope in adulthood.

What stands out

The title is a nod to the Fast and Furious franchise, but really, they did not need to involve them considering that there’s no street racing, heists, or Dom Toretto talking about family.
