It's difficult to peg down in writing what exactly [the] narrative might be, as the film has its own unique vocabulary and advances in a manner befitting its title; there are plenty of false starts, dead ends, and sudden flashes of genuine insight. Is there a grand unified theory buried amongst the disorder? Perhaps not, but FAST, CHEAP & OUT OF CONTROL isn't a film about pat conclusions. After all, as Brooks mentions, analyze it too much and it might all become meaningless.
