15 years ago, BMW commissioned a series of short films to showcase their cars. And they recently added a sequel. The original films were remarkably good, starring Clive Owens. This was one of our favorites and we thought you all might enjoy it, too.

PS: There is no way that these first came out 15 years ago. It was just a couple of years ago, right?

I have them on DVD, too. I believe that we got it through BMW CCA.

I watched the new one a couple of days ago. It's pretty good. BMW definitely put up a decent production budget to make it.

They would give it to you if you could prove you owned a BMW. It was pretty awesome back then.

I can only imagine what the budget was for these films. I'm guessing that it's somewhere near "a lot."
