Quite possibly one of the greatest, most awe-inspiring film documentarys i have seen, certainly the best for a long time.
The way the movie is handled and researched, shot with dignity and respect but maintaining an engrossing tension, is immense and full credit to the makers. The footage of some of the actual racing is terrifying in an adrenaline fuelled way..Breath-taking stuff! The part where Senna over takes every other driver in the pouring rain at Monaco is something to behold, pure genius. It has footage from paticular positioned cameras i didnt even think existed back then.
The rivalry between Alain Prost and Ayrton was gripping stuff. Prost being the fighter, the competer against Senna's dignified, reserved but raw talent.
Ayrton Senna seemed like an emotional, sensitive human being and that is something, that publically at least, you rarely see in the world of sport. A humble, generous man fighting against a corrupt, money driven sport, that still rmains contrived to this day.
Music is added that really fits composed by a fellow brazillian.
It was frustration through all the corruption that killed Senna, well that and a steering wheel support piece going straight through the temple. A crying shame that makes you ponder lots of things like why they didnt postpone the race after Ratzenburger's death at qualifying. A must watch for all F1 fans but also for those people that want to see how to make a fantastic documentary about a dangerous sport.
