    Film 15/30 of Scavenger Hunt 8!
    Task 17. "A film featuring car racing!" (Doesn't have to be Formula 1, any movie featuring a car race is OK!): letterboxd.com/milo123/list/scavenger-hunt-november-2015/

    I don't follow Formula 1 religiously (sure, I watch the highlights occasionally on BBC IPlayer when I have nothing better to do), but I'm interested in watching movies about the sport. Ron Howard's Rush, depicting the rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt (both of whom are mentioned…

    Meticulously made. I have zero interest in racing of any kind but I was captivated by the entire film.

    Much like Amy, Asif Kapadia knows how to get to the heart of the person, strip away the bullshit and leave you feeling educated and satisfied.

    Though perhaps stay away from the extended edition. I didn't realise I had that version and some of the extended interviews may be interesting to racing fanatics, but for me they didn't add much.

    Completely engrossing from beginning to end, Senna is not only an incredibly crafted tribute to one of the all-time greatest sport legends, but also one of the greatest documentaries ever made. Much like with Amy, Asif Kapadia shows his remarkable talent of creating compelling and fascinating stories, with only archival footage and making it into a fully cinematic experience. It is an absolutely groundbreaking achievement and an outstanding piece of storytelling.

    A well told and dramatic story about a sports star I knew nothing about. I watched the directors cut which seemed a bit overlong so I would prob recommend the theatrical release.

    Another example of the technician versus the performer in which Senna is the latter. Everything is political even the ones that are recreational in nature.

    Incredible documentary and incredible personality. Pure talent meets formula 1 politics.

    En este increíble documental, Ayrton Senna dice algo acerca de como no se siente feliz del todo a sus 31 años, pero que todavía le quedaba mucho por vivir, ya que posiblemente estaba en la mitad de su vida. Esa frase, muestra el verdadero significado de la vida y nos deja claros que hay que 'vivir el momento' por muy trillado que suene, pero es así como podremos disfrutar y apreciar todos esos altibajos que la vida nos ofrece.

    A fantastic documentary about a very interesting man. More drama and story than your average fiction drama.
