Senna (2010) by Asif Kapadia
Fascinating documentary about Brazilian Formula One legend Ayrton Senna.
Philip French for the Guardian:
“The brilliantly edited film is based entirely on footage drawn from hundreds of hours of newsreel, material from Formula One’s own archives, much of it previously unseen, and from the Senna family’s home movies. There are no re-enactments or talking heads looking back over the career. But there are newly recorded voiced contributions by journalists and professional collaborators that are included over contemporary footage from the 70s, 80s and 90s.”
Thrilling, gripping, moving, gut-wrenching & inspiring. That about sums it up.
