Steve Mcqueen: The Man & Le Mans [DVD]
Steve Mcqueen: The Man & Le Mans [DVD]
Dvd ~ Gabriel Clarke

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully crafted documentary that takes you into the rollercoaster project ..., 15 Jun. 2017
An incredible insight into the obsession of McQueen. A wonderfully crafted documentary that takes you into the rollercoaster project that was 'Le Mans'. I didn't realise that McQueen was so consumed by the film, what a complex character he was and just what he had to go through to follow his dream. If you love McQueen, if you love racing, you'll love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was brilliant. A really evocative film, 31 Mar. 2016
This was brilliant. A really evocative film, superbly portraying the obsession McQueen had with Le Mans. A must for McQueen fans. Such a shame it hasn't had a wider release in the UK - so many people would love to see this.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a highlights package, 11 Dec. 2011
The England/India series was incredibly entertaining, and this is a really refreshing way to package it, with former England captain Michael Vaughan getting the opinion of current captain Andrew Strauss alongside all the key highlights. Vaughan quizzes Strauss on all the dramatic moments, as well as getting insight into the players under his command. This makes it a proper watch, rather than just a succession of boundaries as the consequences of every decision and wicket are properly explained by a really interesting interview, that provides a narrative alongside the action. Oh and you get all the key moments from England becoming the number one team in the world...which isn't a bad deal all things considered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Fun, 3 Jun. 2011
Cycling is a slightly bizarre sport I guess, and this is a wonderfully funny and frank account of the extraordinary bike race that is the Tour de France.

Ned takes us from his first painful experiences as a bumbling, novice cycling reporter, through his love affair with the event, confronting the major issues on the way; drug scandals, Armstrong, finding launderettes on rest days, and just what the conversational etiquette should be when urinating in the open air.

This book is hugely accessible, the sport's serious and sometimes murky side is confronted properly, but before too long the narrative gently carries us off to slightly lighter concerns, like trying to pack a hot iron. Ned encounters the big names of the sport, and gives us the insiders view. We see his development alongside theirs, as well as meeting some of the more fascinating characters who keep the race ticking along, like Rudi the toilette tsar.

I really enjoyed this book from start to finish, the sort of book you don't want to rush, but that you read in the garden with a huge grin on your face. When I reached the end, not only was I laughing quite loudly in embarrassing fashion, but I also felt quite sad that Ned Boulting's insider account of eight years on tour was over. Superb.
