    A masterclass in editing, Senna tells us the story of the best Formula One driver to have ever lived - from his first race to his last.

    Asif Kapadia creates a gripping documentary with the use of masterful thriller-like pacing and an exceptional use of archival footage, yet never losing touch of a very human and touching story.

    Hopefully, (from what I've heard it really is), Kapadia's latest feature "Amy" is a worthy follow-up

    Asif Kapadia has to be one of the most dedicated documentary film makers. After seeing his excellent 'Amy' I had to revisit this masterful study of the late great driver. Asif's relentless efforts to find footage and edit to a natural film experience void of talking heads is impressive and should be the example of how the genre should be rather than an exception. Not an info dump, but art.

    Clearly the work of people who love this remarkable driver; i wish the documentary was a bit more balanced- but I get it's about his passion.

    As a non F1 watcher I found this interesting but a bit underwhelming storytelling wise.

    From his Formula One debut in 1984 to his death at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, Brazilian motor-racer Ayrton Senna dominated the sport.

    My knowledge of motor racing ends with NASCAR and the Indianapolis 500. Formula One is a mystery to me. I’m familiar with names like Michael Schumacher and Mario Andretti, but that’s the limit of my expertise.

    I hadn't heard of Senna or his rival Alain Prost before. It was interesting to watch their rivalry develop, but…

    Emotional and entertaining story. Still, it unnecessarily portraits some of the people as evil or unethical, which I do not agree with.

    Alain Prost is a marvellous villain.

    What a great documentary about the best driver of all time. It´s brilliant to hear the voices of so many comrades and rivals. Also you can see the progress of safety in formula one.

    I don't follow Formula One, but this was an absolutely brilliant documentary: thrilling, informative, emotionally resonant and, crucially, a rounded, honest look at Senna. One of the best films I've seen in a long time.
