Just watched 'Hell On Wheels'.

A quite beautiful film that deserves both a better name and film poster and more recognition, as so often independent film maker's efforts do.

An interesting documentary with superb photography, a subtle and evocative soundtrack and really really good editing, making an amazing feature length bike film about the 2003 TDF.

Really enjoyed it, am recommending it to you all.

don't think so. I found it as an import Zone 1 dvd.

It's pretty good though. I'd rank it up there with Ride the Divide and the Collective as my faves.

Höllentour (original German title of Hell on Wheels) is pretty good.

Would recommend anyone check out Jorgen Leth's two cycling documentaries from the 70s, 'Stars & Watercarriers' and 'A Sunday in Hell'.
