The World’s Fastest Indian Music By J. Peter Robinson
The title of The World’s Fastest Indian refers to the classic Indian Scout motorcycle that was the prized possession of New Zealander Burt Munro, played by Sir Anthony Hopkins. All his life, he dreamed of reaching a goal that seemed impossible and sublimely innocent: to be the fastest man on earth. The riveting Sir Anthony Hopkins stars as the famous speed king in this celebration of a singular obsession with motorcycle racing and a boundless lust for life. Scored by composer J. Peter Robinson (A Man Apart, Godzilla, Highlander, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare and Cocktail). With a 61-piece orchestra in front of him, Robinson scored a variety of cues, from a soft tender moment featuring pianist Mike Lang and violinist Bruce Dukov, to a tense action cue integrating a bit of electronic percussion that underscored a dramatic race sequence.
