    Even for non-f1 fans this is an incredibly gripping movie. It is a documentary charting the racing career of arguably the great F1 driver Ayrton Senna. It starts with Senna speaking in voiceover and ends with the same voiceover. By the end these same words give w very different meaning. The in car footage of an early Monaco Grand Prix is simply astonishing. Excellent poignant movie

    Senna is that rare sports documentary that rises to the top tier of sports films in general. The story, or at least the way it is presented here in all its glorification, is mesmerising, exhilarating and heart-breaking. It's probably the best thing to ever come out of F1.

    I have no memory of Ayrton Senna whatsoever. The Senna era happened during my early childhood (when we didn't even own a TV), and even beyond that F1 has only ever existed…

    Incredibly engaging with great use of archival material with overlaid interviews. There are no talking heads here, sound bites, newly recorded or previously available are used in combination with the image.

    A truly exhilarating and heartbreaking portrait on one of the greatest Formula One racers that ever lived in Ayrton Senna as it's told with such style and warmth about the late racer.

    "El pueblo de Brasil necesita alimentos, necesita sanidad, educación, alegría...y él era la alegría".

    Un virtuoso de su deporte, alguien capaz de llevar la técnica hasta límites que ningún otro piloto había conseguido nunca, díscolo con las élites administrativas y de poder, contrario a los juegos de política y dinero que hay detrás del deporte de élite, señalado como oveja negra y torpedeado desde dentro, ídolo de masas y que murió joven, en un accidente, mientras competía. Es una de…

    The choice to restrict this film to all archival footage restricts our sense of Ayrton Senna, somewhat – the girlfriends we see him with come and go without any explanation of that facet of his life, the interviews focus on his love of speed without speaking to why it consumed the 3-time Formula 1 champion. Perhaps it’s one of those films less about who he was and more about what he means. The editing and the structuring of all that…

    Damn, that was exciting.

    Heard this was good and gave it a watch on a whim. I'm glad I did. Even though I've never followed any kind of professional racing, this still kept me on the edge of my seat the whole play through.

    I loved the way they used the race footage throughout the story, accenting the growing rivalry between Senna and Prost. Most blockbusters don't pack the punch this doc does. It doesn't shy away from the horrors…

    Ayrton Senna was that exceptional kind of human being who decided at a very young age what it was that he wanted to do with his life and then spent every waking moment in pursuit of that goal until he breathed his last. This documentary chronicles five of the most eventful years of his life racing in Formula 1.

    Highs: Senna v. Prost, Prost v. Senna. Theirs was the kind of rivalry legends are made of. The film is a…
