    "Senna" is a documentary that focuses on the popular image of the great auto racer and leaves us to ponder the mystery. Ayrton Senna won the Formula One world championship three times, was cheated of it a fourth, was the beloved hero of his native Brazil and died in a crash at 34 — when he was in the lead during a race. All of that racing fans may already know. This film implies that he was consumed, inflamed, devoured…

    Depicting the kind of true-life drama that fiction can never quite live up to, Asif Kapadia’s Senna tells the story of famed Brazilian auto racer Ayrton Senna, who won three Formula One championships by the age of 31 and tragically died at 34 when he crashed during the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Covering his years as a F1 driver, his rivalry with teammate Alain Prost, and his struggles against the highly politicized Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), Kapadia’s documentary…

    Everyone has their golden age for their particular sport and Formula 1 is no different in that regard. Growing up it was something that I became attached to, particularly on lazy Sunday afternoons when the races were still shown on free TV. As a growing teen in the late 80's to early 90's, this period was my Golden Age, a time of Senna, Prost and Mansell (bear with me), McClaren, Williams and Lotus at the top of the tree.

    This bio of the racing career of gifted and beloved Formula One driver Ayrton Senna is as close to perfect as documentaries get. It is objective in tone toward the subject, neither deifying him or appearing overly critical. Footage is all of the period (no contemporary footage of recreated events or talking heads) and voiceovers from friends and relatives are kept to a minimum. It is rich in detail, race footage is spectacular, and though the depiction of the rivalry…

    I was not a huge fan of Ron Howard's racing mano a mano duel Rush. It had some thrilling moments, and some humour, and some tension, but that was all it ever managed: some. It was never fully committed to what it was, never letting go of its existence as a film and simply going with the high speeds. It almost seemed content in that fact, showing us the duel between drivers but never really backing it up with real…

    There was a lot of material squeezed into the running time, and it often felt rushed because of that, but I found it a sympathetic and engrossing documentary nonetheless.

    Magnifico documental que ensalza mas aun el mito de Senna, contando con un ritmo y una sencillez pasmosa desde su rivalidad con Prost hasta como se enfrento a todos para cambiar la formula 1 y como se convirtió en un ídolo de masas en su país.
