sunday1In 1971, movie director Bruce Brown released “On Any Sunday”, at the time a revolutionary documentary featuring the world of motorcycle racing and responsible for introducing to the sport a generation of Americans. In it, Steve McQueen who was nominated for a best documentary Oscar. Due this Fall in theaters and more than 40 years later, Dana Brown, the son of the famed director and producer, is going to release “ On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter.”

Father Bruce Brown, now 76, says that there hasn’t really been anything good (movie) about motorcycle racing since 1971. The new chapter features interviews and stunning images of this varied world, all images shot in Ultra HD with cutting edge cameras — including the Phantom High Speed Camera — which allows for supreme slow motion to highlight the high-speed racing drama. “The movie is a big canvas of racing all over the world” says Dana Brown. It’s a production of Red Bull Media House,

    Want to see this one. For sure, better than motorcycle “reality” tv shows.

    I disagree with Bruce Browns comment “that there hasn’t really been anything good (movie) about motorcycle racing since 1971″.
    How about these documentaries:
    1. Faster
    2. Dust to Glory
    3. Isle of Man TT
    4. TT: Closer to the Edge

    Sounds good, any movie about motorcycles is a positive for me!

    That said, this version of OAS is sponsored by RedBull — That means any Monster Energy, RockStar or other competing brand sponsored riders are not featured.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I read the list of stars and that appeared to be the case. . .

    These films are about real everts and real riders , unlike the silly TV reality shows like the father and son Toodle loos and the Laughing Lames, then there is The Sons of malarkey , ‘Nuff said.
